The commentor probably was thinking of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Comment: Just read your piece on Jane Fonda and it is complete crap

People have been telling me for a long time about your bias but I did not
believe them until now.

Spoke to people personally who were in North Korea both as prisoners and
North Koreans themselves and they all state that her presence and comments
did impact greatly on the prisoners and gave heart to the North Viets.

As a Canadian I find this a disgrace.

Cannot trust your site any longer.

What were North Viets doing in North Korea? More importantly what was a 13 year old doing in North Korea? Henry Fonda had a lot of explaining to do!

Comment: I heard a rumor that Cesaer Chavez who owns Citgo is changing the
gas station names to PEPCO Express due to weakened sales in the US ove his
involvement with IRAN and Russia - is this true?

I'm pretty sure Cesar Chavez isn't changing the name of anything right now. I wonder if they meant Cesar Millan, the dog whisperer, and changing the name to PetCo to bring in the animal lovers? But I don't think he owns any gas stations (maybe some stock though).

Comment: Are you aware that there is a site using your logo and giving
false information on Our President! This is not a trustworthy site and it
should be in trouble for using your logo without your permission or
knowledge. I hope you act on this tip and somehow have this site dropped.
thanks. The site I'm referring to is below:

Comment: YOU KNOW...SNOPES.COM DROPPED SOME POINTS IN ACCURACY WITH THIS
RESPONSE TO THIS INQUIRY OF TRUE OR FALSE. IF YOU ARE A ROMNEY SUPPORTER
WOULDN'T IT HAVE BEEN MORE 'ACADEMIC' AND 'CREDIBLE' TO JUST SAY, "NOT
QUITE TRUE, HERE IS THE EXACT QUOTE--YOU CAN DECIDE FOR YOURSELF" BECAUSE
THE QUOTE YOU SAID IS LONG AND THE OTHER QUOTE THAT WAS ASKED ABOUT IS A
'QUIP'--CUT-TO-THE-CHASE, SHORT AND TO THE POINT STATEMENT BUT IT COMES
OUT TO BE THE SAME THING. I GOT AN EMAIL TODAY WITH THIS ROMNEY VIEW BUT
BEFORE I SENT IT OUT ON MY EMAIL LISTS I DECIDED TO CHECK SOURCES AND


SNOPES.COM IS ONE OF MY 'SPAM' CORRECTING SOURCES. BUT NOW THAT I SEE
YOUR RESPONSE TO THIS SENSITIVE ISSUE, I'M NO LONGER AS SURE AS I ONCE WAS
IN SNOPES.COM ABILITY TO STAY NEUTRAL AND REPORT THE NEWS BECAUSE THAT
'QUIP' IS NOT 'FALSE'; IT IS A SHORT VERSION OF A LONG-WINDED
STATEMENT.--MARGARET OPINE

Eh, "quip," "clip," - close enough, right? Wait, which one means "excerpt" and which one means "joke" again?

Sorosos? That sounds like the sub-boss you fight in the middle of the third dungeon of a Final Fantasy game.

Comment: I couldn't find an area that covered Obama rumors. IS there
some reason you aren't reporting that? I HOPE I'M just looking in the
wrong places, but I thought politics would be the most appropriate spot.
I've used your site a number a times, but not finding "Obama" is very
suspicious.

Snopes, that deviously clever man, has sneakily hidden stuff about the politician Barack Obama in the category "Barack Obama" under "Politics". The fiend!

Comment: sirs,
WHY DO YOU FOLKS HAVE A COLOR CODE? IF YOU WANT FOLKS TO READ
EVERYTHING, THEN TAKE AWAY YOUR CODE SYSTEM. THE MEANING OF A CODED SYSTEM
IS TO MAKE IT FASTER FOR THE PERSON USING IT. IF YOU PLACE A "GREEN
DOT"(YOUR SYMBOL MEANING TRUE) NEXT TO AN ITEM IF IT IS REALLY FALSE, THAN
YOUR PROOFREADER MUST BE BLIND. AFTER 20 PLUS YEARS IN THE SERVICE AND
THEN 21 YEARS WORKING IN THE COMPUTER FIELD I THINK THAT I KNOW HOW TO
READ CODES, I MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO TYPE TO WELL DO TO A WOUND IN MY ARM,
BUT I STILL CAN READ A SCAN MARKER TO SEE IF AN ITEM IS TRUE OR FALSE.
MAYBE YOU HAD BEST RETRAIN YOUR WORKERS AS TO THE MEANING OF YOUR MARKERS,
OR DO AWAY WITH THEM IF YOU SAY THAT YOUR USERS HAVE TO READ EVERYTHING IN
YOUR ARTICLES, THEN YOU HAVE DEFEATED YOUR PRIMARY CORPORATE MISSION.

Comment: I did read the article completely. It shows the word "Outdated"
at the very beginning of your article. It is also stated at the bottom
that on Dec. 9, 2011 on WMGT, Macon, GA in an article titled that
"Military Hospital Rescind's Ban on Bibles". What I want to know is this
corrector or not?

It's more corrector than some, but not as corrector as others.

Umm, reading an article "completely" means not just scanning the first and last lines, but reading everything in between.

Comment: About Mr. and Mrs. clueless, the one picture seems to have blurry
background image of marines in background that appears that ribbons are on
wrong side. However the same picture that has clear image of marines in
background shows that their ribbons are on the correct side.I believe you
are wrong!
