Ed, if a background check is being done, being honest and forthcoming to me is the best way to deal with it. As long as you are sincere and not trying to hide something, you still have a better chance of a good result. Some folks make their determination just based on what they read regardless of what you say...so it's best to keep up what you're doing...if folks are going to read about something, your truthful answer has a better chance of helping you. Some folks just enjoy making people miserable. Just persevere and don't give up.
