25. Some more non-literal thinking on your part?

 

lit·er·al 
  Show IPA
adjective
1.
in accordance with, involving, or being the primary or strict meaning of the word or words; not figurative or metaphorical: the literal meaning of a word.
2.
following the words of the original very closely and exactly: a literal translation of Goethe.
3.
true to fact; not exaggerated; actual or factual: a literal description of conditions.
4.
being actually such, without exaggeration or inaccuracy: the literal extermination of a city.
5.
(of persons) tending to construe words in the strict sense or in an unimaginative way; matter-of-fact; prosaic.

I think 3 and 4 are particularly applicable here. You condemn others for speaking truthfully and not in an exaggerated or inaccurate manner. One could only assume that means you do not speak truthfully or accurately.
