Yeah, but there are only so many times we can get away with groping God while resting in him before he gets angry.

I'd steer clear of him for a little while. After Friday night at Jack's place, he's in a smiting mood!

Comment: although I think you provide a wonderful service to those of us
using the internet, I question the article I just read - you have grouped
what may be a variation of an old hoax with a different company but
haven't shown any research to support what may indeed be a new problem. If
you DID research the "new" problem you should support your claim. while
the "Oscar Meyer" hot dog problem may be a twist of the "Starbucks"
problem HOW CAN WE BE SURE of that? All you have done (or at least it
LOOKS LIKE all you have done) is say that someone substituted the company
and food and perpetuated an old hoax. How do we know it is a hoax? Isn't
it possible that Oscar Meyer screwed up?

my job entails working on a daily basis with veterans and ONLY veterans,
many of which are returning Iraqi Freedom (OIF)vets. if oscar meyer is
innocent I will gladly support them but if they did what is alleged...

I received the information from another veteran (who also works
exclusively with vets) - please clarify your research on this particular
food for me. I don't want to keep a hoax going but don't see evidence of
(or reference to) your contact with Oscar Meyer questioning the alleged
incident.

D'oh!

"I know the one about money from Bill Gates and Microsoft is false, and the
one about the free cars from Honda is false, and the one about $50 gift
certificates from the Gap is false, and the one about free laptops from
Ericsson is false, and the one about free air travel from Delta is false,
but what about this e-mail about free PlayStation consoles from Sony?
You didn't prove it's not true ..."

Comment: This is about your article on Osama at:
http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/osama.asp

The status says: Real, but outdated

Last I checked, Osama has not been captured, so the pictures would in fact
be a hoax.

Comment: http://www.snopes.com/fraud/telephone/809.asp

On this page you have a picture of the Shutterfly.com website. As a
professional photographer who sells photos through this website I'm
concerned because it appears that Shutterfly is somehow related to the
scam described in the article. And yet nowhere in the article does it
mention Shutterfly.com. Don't you think there should be some explanation?
I think that if they're not related to the article/scam described, then
your article could make people apprehensive about purchasing through their
site.

Comment: Is everything on your site verified and accurate? I'm referring
to the comparison between the Bush house in Texas and the Gore house in
Tennessee.

Ya, Snopes, why don't you create a mailing list and e-mail people who subscribe all the latest UL information? Send it out, say, once a week. Wouldn't that be a great idea?

What do you mean you already do it?

"No," it's "not" "okay." Especially "since" it's "false" & a hoax (no quotation marks).

Then there could be a website to debunk and discuss ULs...

Don't we all just do that ourselves? I am pretty much off everyone's group emails here at work. A little snopes can unclutter your Inbox!

Comment: National Do-Not-Call Registry for Cell Phones

Please update this information. One of our staff members has received
telemarketer calls on her cell phone in the last few days, and I have
received text messages from telemarketers on mine. Costs money!
