CG_719C ? ? ? What gives?

Renewing MMC and now they have this CG_719C ( CG 719C) included that tells me I MUST reveal even a stupid misdemeanor from a few years ago that was basically dropped. What gives with these people - since when were seaman perfect? What happened to this industry - is this just another way to discriminate? [U]More importantly[/U], can I expect that these people will really dig that deep as to find an out-of-state misdemeanor? [U]Should I just ignore filling it out for this miniscule instance?[/U] Opinions please on all of the above. Thanks.
