In my experience, the UKBA is much more lenient and forgiving than the US INS - if the UKBA will ban for lying, then I can only imagine what the US INS will do

(Trust me, as a Canadian who grew up close to the Canada/US border, I've had plenty of experience dealing with the US INS in my time... they detained me for 30 minutes once, when I was starting off on a car trip from Vancouver to Minnesota - nobody gave me any reason for detaining me, but I was made to report to immigration, show my passport & driving license at the border checkpoint and my car was searched... I am convinced that it was because I am a visible minority, as everyone else in the immigration hall was other-than-caucasian, but as I had no proof, I kept my mouth shut as I didn't want to get deported)
Now when thinking back to it, when she said "have I done this sort of thing before?"
this could have just been referring to long stay and not the full 90 days thing, so I don't think I lied, I just said yes, no reference to how long I stayed last time, even though it was a long stay.

FYI, U.S. INS was dissolved at the end of February, 2003. From March 1, 2003, the agency responsible for, among other things, screening incoming passengers to the United States is Customs and Border Protection (CBP). (USCIS and ICE also assumed some of INS's mission.)
