Comment: Mr. Mikkelson,
I just read the CNN article on snopes.com and was sad when I read this quote:
"I often feel like we're not really changing anybody's mind," he said. "The people who use the site are the people who are looking for something that confirms what they already think.
"But the people whose beliefs are being challenged, who think something is really true, and we're saying it's false, they'll just say (Snopes) isn't credible or it's biased or it's not qualified. Yeah, it's kind of disconcerting at times."
I speak for myself and several of my friends, and we truly value Snopes. Yes, I often look to validate my thoughts. However, more than not, snopes gives me the facts and details to further support my ideas.
So, you may be allowing me to be a lazy consumer of news, BUT I really appreciate it. Your writers are more articulate than me and I like having another source besides my own opinion! (An opinion that I truly find educated and value, but has been, on occasion, somewhat biased, questioned and flawed!)
There have been times that snopes has debunked my opinions and I, for one, never questioned your validity. I knew you had researched the story and to the absolute best of your ability, were reporting the truth. Wow, I sound like a lazy lemming! But...I do believe in letting the pros do what they do best!
I was very pleased to see you are doing some original reporting! You are following the HBO model and that is brilliant!
The fact that you have operations in my current hometown of San Diego was a pleasant surprise. The photos and article made me realize you are a true down to earth , do-good operation and not sitting in a corporate hi rise picking and choosing based on a pure monetary gain. I do believe that Vinny Green deserves a raise. His apartment does need a little decorating.
I hope this note gives you a bit of a lift and is not the only sign of support you have gotten since the article. I was sorry to hear of your personal battles right now and hope you do not lose faith in what you are doing and all you have built.
With sincere thanks

Comment: Hello

This is only to congratulate you on your excellent, informative an intelligent response to the rubbish that is flooding the internet - and my home. Having regular contact with your site helps me cope with the incessant stream of outlandish stories that are presented to me by others who believe them.

Keep up the god work!

All the best

Comment: Thank you for your time and efforts to help people like myself stay away from charlatans and rip-off characters like this.
I really appreciate you and the expertise you provided and can only hope that this very small gesture of appreciation will carry you onto your next charlatan -- there doesn't seem to be a shortage in that department.
thank you again, live well; you have helped me to do so...

Comment: Your team has taken a lot of hits lately. But I have to tell you that each time any of my wayward friends thinks something is "real" - you are my source. Keep up the good work - we need you!
Many, many thanks to the entire team!

Comment: During this unsettling time when one doesn't know which end is up, let alone what is true or false, Snopes is doing noble work. Not to overstate the point, but it does lead me to commend you at the highest possible level. Your organization and others of your ilk are indeed holding the forces of fear and despair at bay for the rest of us.

So, when you are tired, frustrated, angry, and fed up with the endless deluge of stupidity that comes across your screens, stay strong, stay committed to facts, stay in love with your work.

"Yes, I believe in Evil. I believe it is a force in the world that is trying to unmake us." The Rev John Claypool.

The information you verify or debunk gives us a steady place to stand where we can begin to repair the damage done by our own misguided and ill informed choices. Help us not to be undone by this time of confusion, distrust and fear. Be one we can trust.

Comment: Dear Snopes,
I just wanted to let you guys know that you're doing a great job. It's saddening that such fact checking websites have to exist to disprove fake news, but i'm glad that there are people putting hard work into it. Keep up the good work guys/gals.
