On bullshit, bullshitting, bullshitters and sycophants

This is a serious discussion based on the scholarly definition of bullshit in the 2005 nonfiction US best selling book by Princeton University professor emeritus Harry Frankfurt - On Bullshit (see ; ). It is often difficult to decide whether statements are lies, bullshit or if one is dealing with sycophants doing what they think they ought to do.
