Yes, it does.

Comment: When I asked why the "TRUE" baner was on the item named
http://www.snopes.com/lost/fraction.asp (Half Measures)
and
http://www.snopes.com/lost/false.htm (a description of OTHER spoof
reports),
the former was not on the list of false reports.
The fact that Your "lost/fraction" still says "True" is confusing. How can
we trust other Snopes reports that have the same colored "True" claim?

Comment: The question is: Did Jesus say this to Peter: “Get behind me,
Satan! You are an obstacle to me. You are thinking not as God does, but as
human beings do.” SNOPES programming could not find an answer.

It would be helpful if SNOPES could verify the truth of such a question,
which is readily researchable with the same ease as any other question
SNOPES might address.

If SNOPES categorically excludes a mainstream question such as this, it
suggests that the programming and discernment process that informs and
directs SNOPES in its activities is open to serious question. This would
undermine the reliability and the value of SNOPES.

The actual quote was "Get thee behind me, Satan! The end of the line is back there somewhere. No butting." (A little known fact about the Last Supper is that the caterers didn't provide quite enough for the buffet. Some of the Apostles were eager to try the marinated mushrooms before they were all gone. At least, that is one interpretation.)

Actually what Jesus said at the Last Supper was "Every one who wants to be in the picture, come around to this side of the table."
