How do you detect a "spin" answer instead of an honest answer?

If you have a healthy dose of skepticism, you are probably asking questions. Which brings us to a different problem...

How do you detect a "spin" answer, i.e. an answer designed to CONCEAL the truth, instead of a real answer?

In general, a spin answer does one of two things:

Be evasive

Give an answer that does NOT answer the question you asked, but sounds as if it does.
Give a vague and/or abstract answer instead of a detailed and specific answer

Be slippery

Appeal to emotion, secrecy, or some excuse to NOT answer your question.
Offer answer that *could* explain the facts, but is NOT the only answer
