Comment: Thank you Snopes! Anytime I get an email that doesn't sound
quite right, I always come to your site to check it. I appreciate the
research that you do so I can find out so quickly!

Comment: Thanks so much for all the accurite information you share with us
all.
It has helped me to no end - I no longer forward any radical sounding
emails without checking the story through Snopes.com.
This is truly a great service you do, not only for the internet, but for
avoiding the millions of lies from being redistributing as truth!
Keep up the great work.

Comment: Your site is, hands down, THE BEST THING TO EVER HIT THE NET!!

You provide an invaluable service to all users of the Internet, ferreting
out scams, lies and half-truths.

THANK YOU! Please keep up the good work! So much bandwidth is wasted from
things like, "Send this e-mail to 40 people so little Joey can get a new
liver!"

While most people can smell the stink of a lie right away, there are way
more people who believe anything they read on the Internet... it amazes
me.

I am your constant cheerleader, telling everyone I know to ALWAYS CHECK
WWW.SNOPES.COM!

XOXO

Comment: Thank you so much for all that you do. I appreciate all of your
hard work and research. I refer people to your site all of the time.
Mostly the ones that continually send me the chain email urban legends.

Comment: Dear Snopes,

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE. THERE HAVE BEEN MANY
TIMES I HAVE WANTED TO TELL PEOPLE OFF WHO SEND OUTRAGEOUS THINGS THROUGH
EMAIL THAT ARE TOTALLY OR PARTIALLY INCORRECT. I ALWAYS REFER TO SNOPES
AND , INSTEAD OF SENDING A MEAN OR NASTY REPLY, I JUST FORWARD A SNOPES
ARTICLE. THAT STOPS THEM DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS! I ESPECIALLY LOVE SNOPES
WHEN I RECEIVE SOME POLITICALLY ORIENTED EMAIL THAT I DO NOT AGREE WITH
THE POSITION. I FIND THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE AGAINST ONE THING OR ANOTHER TRY
TO INCITE OTHERS TO BELIEVE AS THEY DO BY CIRCULATING FALSEHOODS, HALF
TRUTHS AND LIES. SOMETIMES THEY DO NOT EVEN KNOW THEY ARE SENDING
INCORRECT INFORMATION. SNOPES IS MY "GO TO" INFORMATION CENTER WHEN I DO
NOT FEEL LIKE DOING ALL THE RESEARCH MYSELF! I HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED A
TOPIC WHERE SNOPES HAS BEEN WRONG! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR BEING THERE. YOU
HAVE SAVED ME FROM GETTING INTO MANY AN ARGUMENT WITH IGNORANCE! I LOVE
SNOPES!

Comment: Hi Snopes folks, You have a fantastic service--able to debunk all
the crazy(but believeable and alarming) stuff that comes to our mailboxes
every day. Most recently for me, how cell phones were so powerful that
they could pop popcorn (looked so authentic, I believed it and forwarded
it on without checking it out. Duh!) I tell everyone to use your wonderful
site, especially before sending me more "junk." Thanks again.
