*** Additionally, different levels of culpability (or ''mens rea'') may be involved: committing a crime generally involves a deliberate act, such as murder, theft, or even driving at a dangerous speed; failure to comply with the law can involve a mere mistake, such as genuinely neglecting to account for a 1099 in preparing your tax return.

** Similarly, WordOfGod is that Ender didn't exterminate the Buggers, he "removed their ability to make war" - and it just so happened that he did so by exterminating them. This isn't just sophistry, though: the idea that the morality of an action is determined solely by the motives behind it is prominent throughout the series, to the point that it's at the core of the religion Ender founds.

May also relate to CannotTellALie or WillNotTellALie, when the wording is very deliberately selected to convey a false impression without technically being a lie in the traditional sense.



* Similarly, in ''Manga/LuckyStar'', after Konata asks her dad, on account of him having loved [[OlderThanTheyLook Kanata]] and being clingy with Konata herself, if he is a {{Lolicon}}, he insists that she's got him all wrong; he not only likes young girls, but likes more mature, well-endowed women, too, so he is "''also'' a lolicon"... Konata is suitably disturbed.

** There is a genuine legal distinction between robbery and burglary, which most people don't think about much, but Murphy, being a police officer, would be well aware of the difference (namely, "Robbery" involves violence or the threat of it, while "Burglary" only requires taking stuff).



** Several times through the series and movies, Spock was accused of lying, only to reply that he "exaggerated", or "implied" or in some other way [[WillNotTellALie deliberately led others to false conclusions without technically lying]].



** Also, when Margaret states that they are blackmailing Frank, Hawkeye and BJ respond, "Blackmail is such an ugly word. We prefer extortion."
