A3. "lies" is needlessly polarizing language.  Yes, it's data that

this is handled then you're asking for trouble.  But using the term
'lies' is ridiculous.
Faced with being forced to enter data, people have entered things like 99/99/99 for a date, -99 for an age, 999-999-9999 for a phone number, and all kinds of similar entries. "Lies" is quite appropriate.
