Fight snopes: Universal Ombudsman

Comment: I am wondering if there is anything that can be done to these
people that are on the Internet commiting all of this fraud.(lottery
fraud) I never even begin to respond to them before I come on this site
and look it up but I am so fed up with this. Please contact me with any
info that you feel could help in this matter.

Comment: http://www.adhd-living.com/

I have just submitted a correction to this website, how do I notify SNOPES
when finding a website with incorrect information?

my posting is as follows:

There has never been any evidence that Charles M. Schulz had ADHD. He was
a model student in the early grades winning awards. I understand your
intention here, but the list should be truthful and therefore Charles M.
Schulz's name should not be included.

Comment: Im trying to call or contact Net Zero because 2 months ago I
cancelled my online service with them but still being billed the monthly
charge. I don't have a phone number to contact them even though I tried
to find it. They should have cancelled the service and I no longer use
their service.

Do a lot of the people who mail you guys think you're some kind of catchall internet customer service committee? I mean, clearly some do, but is this a very common misconception?

And in asking, do I sound like one of em?

Comment: This isn't exactly a rumor. This has happenned thie last week of
april 2008.
I and at least 4 people I've talked to have had emails returned from valid
addresses marked something like - permanent problem with address. We've
also had emails that didn't reach their destination with no return message
of failure.

I've had it happen occasionally in the past but this is about 1 in 5
mails. It's not just within one ISP. People who've had problems are with
AOL, Yahoo, MSN, and Comcast, at a minimun.

Do you have any information on this?

I don't think there's any misconception that isn't common around here ...

Comment: http://www.channel7wbc.com/electronic-cigarettes.htm#

Web ads like this shouldn't be allowed. It looks like an actual local
news station website. People who don't know any better will fall for this
ad.

I didn't know who else to send this to.

Comment: Why are random bars or capital I appearing in all the articles I
read on the net. Is it just my computer or is it happening all over? Is
there a fix because it distracting and annoying?

Comment: I wish to report a gentleman who is stalking women via the
Internet, a womanizing Herpes carrier and possible sociopath who is
actively seeking to infect as many decent women as he can. His name is
XXXX XXXXXXX. He currently lives in Atlanta, GA. I have tried to
find a way of reporting him to the Health Department for maliciously
trying to transmit an STD, but have been unsuccessful. This 47-year-old
man is a danger to women and anyone currently on several dating websites
needs to be warned.

Do you offer any such reporting space?

I think you're confusing snopes.com with Facebook.
