The distinction between deliberately lying and deliberately making a true statement in order to deceive is — it seems to me — pretty arbitrary. Certainly if I was the person being deceived, I’d be pissed off either way.
But it does matter to some people. I remember that some of the Quaker jokes I heard growing up (Quaker jokes are only told by Quakers — who else would bother?) involved Quakers, usually businessmen, getting the better of someone in a business deal by paltering.
And it turns out there’s a word for it, which is cool.
