Comment: To Whom It May Concern:

I appreciate this website as a place to go to find out the truth. However,
I believe that is all it should do. I had read one of the articles and
found whoever wrote it added much of there personal "opinions" to it. They
were obviously very "liberal" and "far left". I would appreciate "just the
facts" and not your personal views on any issues. It is apparent that this
person did not know what they were talking about. So again, please stick
to the "FACTS".

Tsk, Tsk

We'd be "more than happy" to stick to "just the facts" when "you" learn how to be less "obnoxious" with quotation marks "."

I think Steve already answered this one in Page 1 of this post:

Ahh, the ability to selectively ignore things. At one point referred to as Mom's Hearing. Mom can hear the sound of the of the vase breaking at home from all the way across town. But she can't the question, "Mommy, can I have a cookie before dinner?" from the child 3 feet away.

I think I need to get better with this newfound Superpower

Comment: I was an avid supporter of the snopes site in the past. lately
however your site has lost its "fair and balanced" tone and has drifted
well left of center. I just looked at your write up on the letter of the
editor written by a mrs. LaBonte. I was stunned by the PC editorial
response. Too bad, you were once a reliable source but I have taken you
off my favorites list.

Yeah, snopes. Actually, I was going to take you off my favorites list, but I didn't have to because my favorites were on the left side of the screen so they fell off when the site tipped.

Who is Mrs. LaBonte and why did you go all PC on her? Are you a Mac hater, snopes?
No, seriously, what is this about because I searched and can't find anything about a Mrs. LaBonte.

As evidenced by my complete lack of opinion on anything pertaining to these issues. Then again, that might be the contaminating wasitu heritage...

I've noticed that myself. I have no idea where you stand on any issue. Wow. You must be apathetic.

D'oh!

Comment: I've also trusted you and held your word as law on this page
until today.

I'm refering to the article about whether Elvis made a racial remark that
degraded black people. (http://www.snopes.com/music/artists/presley1.asp)

How can you possibly label this as "false". Every single one of us has
skeletons in our closet. You have no proof that this is false. It
should be labeled as "undecided".

Do we want to believe it is false? Yes. But after people die we tend to
only remember the positive things, it's human nature. Based on the
information you gave, you could not stand up in court and swear that he
never made the statement.

I'm disspointed in your conclusion on this story. You've allowed your own
opinion to taint the results.

I implore you to correct this erorr and label it as undecided, unconfirmed
or some other word to say that no real proof exists either way.

Actually, I may have an old vinyl 33-1/3 record of him not saying it. Will that do?
