"Hold on a minute," Chanakya replied.
"Before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the #TripleFilterTest."
"Triple filter?" Asked the person
“Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say. That's why I call it the #TripleFilterTest
Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"
"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and..."
"All right," said Chanakya. "So you don't know if it's true or not.”
Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?"
"No, on the contrary..."
"So," Chankaya continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true.
Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"
"No, not really” said the person.
