Submitted by BackOrder
BackOrder writes: As a typical Slashdotter, you've all watched Lie To Me and took wild guesses pointing out people you thought were liars. Didn't work out? Don't worry!

The review covers the main software components as well as the value of its content, including an outline of the pros and cons.
