Do people have no clue on how much it costs to run a website? Ok, maybe not the exact amount, but do they think it's in the millions? What kind of constant funding do they think Snopes.com needs? Not trying to belittle any of the work that is needed, but day-to-day there don't appear to be that many changes or additions to the website that would require massive amounts of funding.

I really want to find someone who believes that snopes is funded by Soros (or similar) and ask them what funding they think is needed.

Tell her she's wrong. Snopes finances George Soros.

Just ask anyone on the board of directors.

Tell her Mr. Soros will pay her $100.00 if she'll go stand in the corner until further notice. On her head.

Comment: I would like to know from where you get your funding besides ads.
Does George Soros back you in any way?

snopes.com, with its wealth of information, is a time-sucking website, not a life-sucking one. For the latter, might I suggest you visit a Brain-Eating Alien Zombie site or, even better, a Republican site.

Comment: I paid into social security for over forty three years and I want
to know what happened to all the money paid into the fund for me and my
wife.
Where did it go?
I sat down a few days ago and going by two year increments
and figured what it would be worth after all that time and
it came out to near two million dollars...
What happened to my fund?

Comment: Dear Snopes,

I have a brother-in-law that annoys the living crap out of me with the
political rhetoric emails. He spews this stuff out to a large community of
followers.

I'm simply not this narrow minded and prefer to know the truth. I use your
site to learn this truth. I always respond to
all of the recipients with a link to the corresponding (and correct)
article from your website.

For the first time tonight, I received a return response (below) from one
the recipients.

"Something you all need to know about the "SNOPES" web site is that it is
a for profit web site and it will suppress and manipulate data to the
highest bidder. They are FOR PROFIT. They are not Lying just
manipulating and suppressing certain data and information to meet their
customers needs.

During the 2008 election SNOPES received 2.8 million dollars to suppress
anti democratic/pro republican data paid for by the democratic party. It
was paid for directly from the Obama campaign fund. It is no secrete
that SNOPES is a fraud web site."
