My question is whether it is correct to say "I feel it bad to lie." and "I feel it bad to take too much of your time." As far as I know, we can say it is impolite to ask someone's age. If they are wrong, is it because of the use of bad", bad collocation?

    It’s not written in stone that you have to say it a certain way, but for me…

    I consider it [to be] bad/good/reasonable/sensible to do a certain thing. :tick:
    I feel it [to be] bad/good/reasonable/sensible to do a certain thing. :thumbsdown:
    I feel [that] it is bad/good/reasonable/sensible to do a certain thing. :tick:
