Comment: Thankyou, for the work you have put into making this information
available. I fit into the category of sceptic. It's the only thing that
saved me from many of the scams your site has reported. But I was always
left wondering if there would ever be the slightest confirmation that my
instincts were correct. You gave me that.

Comment: Thank you for your quick response to my question re Pat Buchanan
that was originally in The Daily Currant. I just got it in an email with
no reference. I use your site almost every day to confirm or deny
something that has come to me! I just want to say that there is no site
out there that is more helpful. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!

Comment: Just want to say I love your website and really admire and
respect the work everyone at snopes.com does. Your research and the depth
of your explanation of Internet rumors must be tedious and difficult at
times and I just want to let you know that it is appreciated. Good job!
Keep it up. Happy holidays.

Comment: Best real true site on the internet/world wide web ever!

Use it constantly to straighten out friends/acquaintances who are gullible
users, or just plain gullible.

Absolutely invaluable resource in the (far too many) months leading up to
the recent election, as I am sure it will continue to be for navigating
the sea of misinformation to be sluiced around the internet in the
political discourse to come.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

Comment: To the editors of Snopes:

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your website and all the research you do
is greatly appreciated. The rumor mill and the nuts out there who want to
create discontent and chaos by sending out outright lies and propaganda
have met there match in the work Snopes does. I have used your research
to send my family members your work and dispel the outright lies of some
of these bogus emails circulating the web. I am so grateful for your
investigative work. Again, thank you.

Comment: I LOVE your article Reindeer Games! I was looking to see if the
part about Alaska Fish and Game was true. I got my answer and a more. The
article is a fantastic mix of scientific evidence, humor, and respect for
children's belief. Well done!

Comment: Just wanted to say "thank you" for the information you provide on
this site. So many times we can be "duped" whether by email, cell phone,
home phone, etc. The state of the economy is such that all of us at some
point in time would love that chance to "get rich quick." Thank you that
when those "false" opportunities come up, I no to come here and check them
out ahead of time before I make a big mistake. God bless and have a
wonderful Christmas!

Comment: Wow. You not only nearly 'got' me with the Mr. Ed story,
but just as I was about to forward it on, you redeemed
yourself with the False Authority explanation!

I was again trying to educate neighbors and friends who
were passing along the WalMart "Cash Back" story.

I have proselytized checking out rumors before forwarding
like . . . forever . . . and always tell folks to first
"check snopes.com first". I cannot tell you the number
of times you have potentially saved embarrasment to
friends and family by at least letting them know
they had passed bad information (so they have the first
opportunity to retract and correct it).

And then I noticed "Lost Legends".

And then I got curious. And I read "Mr. Ed was
a Zebra".

And I composed an EMail to tell same friends and
family and neighbors "hey ... look at this".

But I had this nagging feeling ... how could this
possibly be true? So before I hit "Send" I did
just a little more research.

And I found your story on False Authority.

Brilliant. Absolutely Brilliant.

You guys Rock. Always have. Even more so now.

Comment: Thanks for your site - I really hate people junking up my inbox
with stories they think I should know about. While some are initially
based in some little truth, most just end up being outright falsehoods and
are too much like the rest of the daily spin called news I already have to
read up on to determine what is real and what is not. I have asked my
correspondents to take my name off their "mass email list" - don't want to
block them - to no avail. However, forwarding the debunking that you do
has worked every time! I get to keep my friends, I just don't get the
garbage anymore! And maybe they are even going to your site before
automatically forwarding the junk! Thanks again for being the fact
checkers for the world!

Comment: Thank you for quickly addressing the rumors stemming from the
Sandy Hook school tragedy, especially the hideous rumor that children
wrote notes to their parents. My girlfriend's 11 year old daughter was
really upset by that report and while I told her I doubted it was true,
seeing an independent research source like Snopes debunk it was reassuring
to her. I use your website as a reference all the time and appreciate the
hard work you do to keep it running.

Thanks!

Comment: Thank you for being a resource for keeping people honest. We
trust our friends, but should we trust our friends of friends? Many of us
re-post something or forward something, because we trust the person that
posted or sent it, but we all need to keep each other honest and so some
research prior to pressing that forward or share button is in order.

Thank you for providing an unbiased and factual service to us all.
