With three I'm an algorithm,
With four I'm fake,
With all five I'm dishonor.

  • $\begingroup$ Ah dammit. I tend to ignore the accepted answers because sometimes there is more than one answer... but it turns out I came to the same result as the accepted answer, anyway. I'll try to find an alternative answer. I have to wait $10$ hours before I can upvote (damn daily voting limit), so I'll favourite :D $\color{darkorange}{\bigstar}$ $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Aug 22 '18 at 13:31

My alternative is $\ast$ (ROT13) ABARG, jurer gur rkcynangvbaf ner boivbhf rkprcg sbe gur ABA cneg (gung pbhyq ersre gb guvf) naq gur ABARG cneg (abarg $\to$ avar $\to$ "arva" juvpu vf Nqbys Uvgyre'f pngpu cuenfr).
