Comment: You went way overboard on researching "Reggie" (glurge). That's
what I love about snopes, you do the work, and it's why you're the most
credible and trusted source in myth-busting history. Thank you for all you
Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your website. I use it
on a (very) regular basis, especially to verify the authenticity of many
of the emails I receive. I also encourage my friends and contacts to use
Yours is one of the most useful sites on the internet.
Thank you so much for the work you and other sites like yours do. I am
much smarter and more intelligent when you guys filter out the lies from
the truth. Unfortunately, most Americans jump on any popular bandwagon
that fits their agenda, true or false, and that makes them the unpatriotic
trash of America.
Thanks again for your important work.
Comment: Just want to thank you for trying to uphold the truth with all
the propaganda being circulated in emails. I've found that many people no
longer send me their questionable articles, because I always reply back
with a reference to your site. Please keep up the good work.
Comment: Just an email to thank you for a great site. I have used it for
years to point out to friends and family the error of their ways. I find
out the truth and then email the link to them. Sometimes they are so
embarrassed and won't respond or become defensive like my brother "I don't
read 'em I just send 'em". Since I have them trained now to check with
snopes when they get these odd emails it has cut down on my junk mail
tremendously. I think the proof of how many people use your site for
verification is when you get one of these silly emails and somewhere on it
someone has put
'this is true I checked it on snopes.com' as if that is the stamp of
authenticity! Keep up the great work.
PS Isn't it amazing what people will fall for just because
it is 'on the internet'!!
Comment: I use your website all the time to verify stuff people send to me
and constantly remind other contacts that they should check out stuff on
www.snopes.com before forwarding on. Also, it is just fun to look at some
of the stuff that flies through cyberspace. Thanks!
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I think my friends are getting
very irritated with me sending them links to Snopes, but I am equally as
irritated when they send me email and have not checked the source!!
Snopes.com has saved my sanity and saved my friends from being slapped for
their stupidity! ;D
Comment: Just wanted to thank Snopes for a very clear and precise
explaination. Great Job Keep it up
Comment: Thanks for doing a great service, particularly in these insane
times when twisted minds are trying to persuade people of the world,
especially the USA, to commit harakiri. My take is simply that the Karma
Train is always on time. Again, thanks for a great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Comment: I just want to say thank you for the work you do. It is wonderful
that there is a resource to turn to that tells the truth and lifts the lid
off the garbage that is disseminated on the internet.
Comment: You two are the greatest ---- I wish I could get many fellow
e-mailers to visit your website before sending the plethora of made up,
false, and often hateful e-mails that come my way. Don't know what I
would do without your good work --- many thanks.
I HATE the viral emails that get folks fired up about things not true.
The debate in this country on just about everything even remotely
political is too tied up in fallacies. It was bad enough when I was
getting them from folks on the right. I got this one with an angry note
attached from a left-leaning friend. I was glad to be able to so quickly
set him straight and urged him to be sure to send your link on to everyone
he'd forwarded HIS message to and to whoever he got the message from.
THANK YOU! <----Shouting thank you :)
Comment: I just want to thank you for the work that you do.
Comment: I cannot thank you enough for this site. I used to forward so
many hoaxes believing them to be true. now I check here before I do
anything. I cannot imagine not having snopes as my go to resource. Thanks
so much for saving so many of us from scares that were simply hoaxes.
I've been using your site for years. I never gave much thought to who
operated it until I saw a little flash on T.V. one day. Apparently you are
a Mom & Pop organization, literaly. It all sarted as a hobby and now, a
booming business according to the report. Yea! Hard work and diligence
still gets rewarded.
Pleae, keep up the hard work and may you have much success in 'setting the
record straight' on all sorts of things. You probably don't hear it often
enough but, "THANKS".
Comment: Just want to say thanks for your invaluable website. I have used
it over and over. Just received the "flesh-eating bacteria from new
underwear from foreign countries so wash your bras ladies" e-mail,
complete with horrible pictures.
I was suspicious so checked. I always forward my Snopes results to the
sender, yet the same people keep sending the same types of things without
bothering to check themselves!
My theory is that seeing they are the same forwarders of the "pass this on
to 10 people and/or something good/bad will happen" e-mails, they suspect
that these may be false but think they had better pass them on, JUST IN
(And one should wash new underwear before wearing anyway! :) )
I am so happy that a friend directed me to your site. I have received
various mailings in the past and currently have one now. If I had not
read your site comments on fradulent sweepstakes winnings and lotteries I
would not have recognized that it was worthless. Talk about play on
greed. I now check everything through Snopes first.
Count me saved by Snopes
Comment: Congratulations and thank you for an extremely valuable service
exceptionally well executed. I only need to consult you periodically, but
every time I do, I am impressed and well-served by the results. You make
the world of eager information so much more manageable.
Comment: I just want to thank you...I don't have time to track down even
half of the "rumors" that get sent to me and I'm very grateful that you
Comment: I just wanted to say thanks. I use your site all the time to
check and verify things I receive in emails, and I'm then able to advise
friends on what is or isn't something to worry about. It saves us all a
great deal of time and worry.
So thanks very much - you're doing a really great job.
Comment: Great job on this website. I am an independent and support
neither side. I am sick of all of the made-up stuff circulating about
Obama now and Bush over the previous 8 years. You folks do a great
service in proving or disproving some of these assertions. I reference
your site weekly when I get all of the hate emails that circulate around
the internet. Keep up the good work and never cease your search for the
Comment: I don't know how you do it, but I love it!
This is one of my all-time favorite sites.
Keep up the good work!
Comment: Thank you so much for being a resource that can help us sort
fiction from fact. You provide an important service, and illustrate how
technology can serve information and communication purposes.
Comment: I wanted to say 'Thank You' for the commitment and effort you
must expend in maintaining this site. I must admit that my visits are
erratic. Sometimes I find myself here playing around as I do on YouTube.
Other times I'm researching something I've seen on the web. But although
at times I'm here looking for fun and entertainment, I most appreciate the
site when responding to some fool a__ e-mail! I continue to be amazed
that people pass on any and every thing without bothering to check the
facts. AND, that's where you come in..... It's great to be able to send a
link which includes references to other links when rebutting
misinformation. Thanks again and keep up the good work! Cudos
Comment: Than you for all you do. I visit your site often & usually end
up advising people who've sent me those silly false emails to go to
Snopes.com before they forward alarming emails to others.
Don't know how you do it, am grateful that you're so rliable!
Comment: I know you probably receive myriad messages such as this, and
hardly need another, but I want to thank you for the countless hours of
entertainment and edification, and for the impeccable fact checking.
Comment: Just wanted to say how much I enjoy the articles by Barbara
Mikkelson - they are always well written, informative, impartial and
balanced. In addition, I always have a laugh at whatever 'nickname' she
adopts at the end of an article.
Well done, Barbara!
Comment: I would like to congratulate you on this site. I have found it
very informative and check with Snopes the authentisity of everything that
comes to me via email, thus avoiding cloggging up other peoples inboxes
with information that is not true.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
Comment: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING US ALL A PLACE TO STOP SOME OF
THESE RUMORS THAT GO ROUND AND ROUND FOR YEARS. There's so much bad in
the world, I can't figure why people distort or make up more stuff to
bring us all down and then want us to forward it and it's so easy to check
it out with your site! I continue to check it and respond to these false
Comment: Thanks for the very informative service that you provide.
Comment: Bravo! Your work is awesome and so helpful in dispelling silly,
falst and damaging rumors. I trust your work because you document your
findings so thoroughly.
Some of my friends have taken me off their mass distribution list because
I research their forwarded claims in an instant. Upon disproving the
umpteenth vicious story, I reply using "Reply All" to all the original
recipients, send a link to the particular Snopes page that specifically
dispels the rumor and make the purveyor look ridiculous.
Comment: Thank you so much for the work that you do. It is truly a great
service to all of us. Good job!
Comment: Hey my name is Emily and I would just like to say your website is
very usefull and i would like to thank yall for taking your time to make
this thanks you so very much-Emily:D
Comment: Thank you for the service you provide.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the hard work you do
at Snopes.com! Your article entitled "Cards for Recovering Soldiers" was
especially well-done. Because Snopes.com posted that cards sent to Walter
Reed would NOT make it to any recipients, and because you included the
address of a program that WOULD accept such cards (Holiday Mail for
Heroes), many soldiers are receiving the thanks and warm wishes they
deserve, especially this time of year!
A good hearted coworker of mine sent an email to everyone in the office
asking for employees to send holiday cards to "Cards for Recovering
Soldiers" and after a quick fact-check at Snopes, I replied back to her to
let her know of your assessment. She sent out the info you supplied for
Holiday Mail for Heroes, so hopefully the cards will make it to the
Again, thanks for creating and maintaining such a great site!
Comment: I love your site and appreciate being able to check to see if a
rumor is true or false. I also will send the link to the person that
sends me a false email. I access the site quite often and also like the
ads on the site. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
Comment: Thank you for starting this site. I love everything about it. (I
have also torked quite a few people off with it, thier loss.)
You two are wonderful! Keep up the great work!
Comment: Dear snopes.com
My compliments and thanks for performing a most valuable service. Rarely a
day goes by that some relative, friend or acquaintance does not forward an
amazing story or news item to me that would be amazing if it were true.
Sadly, they are indeed fiction, which I document with a link to snopes.com
along with an admonishment to verify information before mindlessly
spreading rumors and clogging the Internet with junk.
Again, thank you.
Comment: This is my first visit to your site, even though I have heard of
you many times. What a great job you are doing. I am an advocate of
responsible emails and do my best to promote accurate and safe emailing.
Once again, thank you for this.
Comment: your sight is very helpfull tnx
