On Friday, 20 March 2009, AntiPolygraph.org received a communication from a lawyer for NCS Pearson, Inc. demanding the removal of a post from our message board that purports to list the first 75 questions of the 567-question Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Test 2 (MMPI-2). (A seemingly knowledgable poster on the message board maintains that the questions are not from the MMPI-2, but from the older MMPI.)
Many government agencies in the United States use the MMPI-2 to screen applicants for employment, so it is of considerable public interest. The post, made some three years ago, initiated one of the longest discussions on our message board–one that remains active with over 260 posts to date.

On 11 April 2006, AntiPolygraph.org posted the U.S. federal government’s official polygraph handbook, formally titled the Federal Psychophysiological Detection of Deception Examiner Handbook (1mb PDF) dated 1 March 2004. A discussion of this document is available on the AntiPolygraph.org message board here.
In addition, we also made available a Department of Defense Polygraph Institute instructional document dated August 2004 outlining DoDPI’s “Numerical Evaluation Scoring System” (188kb PDF). A discussion of this document is available on the AntiPolygraph.org message board here.
After more than five years of manually updating the Polygraph News page on AntiPolygraph.org, we’re moving to a weblog or “blog” format for linking to and commenting on polygraph, voice stress, and other “lie detector” related news. We hope you will enjoy the change. The old polygraph news pages will remain available, but will no longer be updated.
Two years have passed since AntiPolygraph.org first went on-line on 18 September 2000. Since then, we’ve rapidly grown to become the Internet’s leading site for polygraph information and a focal point for public debate of polygraph issues. Our free book, The Lie Behind the Lie Detector (now in its second edition) has been downloaded 40,000+ times, making it perhaps the most widely distributed book on polygraphy ever published. We thank all those who have helped to make AntiPolygraph.org a success and look forward to continued progress as we enter our third year on-line.
Since its launch on 18 September 2000, AntiPolygraph.org has grown to become the Internet’s premier source of polygraph information and the leading public forum for discussion and debate of polygraph issues. AntiPolygraph.org is grateful to all those who have helped to make our first year a successful one, and anticipates more progress in the coming year. If you would like to help in this effort, contact email@example.com.
AntiPolygraph.org goes online. First digital edition of The Lie Behind the Lie Detector released.
