> I worked at at least one place where sales would tell prospects that the software did things it did not do, i.e., lie to the customer. It put a lot of pressure on a lot of other people!

I'm sure it did! And I bet keeping those lying dimwits employed added
even more pressure over time!

Good communication and accountability, applied correctly, fixes this
in a very mutually beneficial way.
