I think that we need to distinguish between tell a lie and not tell the truth, and also between malicious, humorous, and informal intentions.  My general policy is ever tell the truth. But more specifically my personal policy is never tell a malicious lie and avoid to tell frequently  humorous and informal lies.  Also, seek to tell the truth to people who are entitled to know it, and can do something useful and good with it, even when they aren't asking me.
