Comment: Dear Barbara et. al.
Just want to thank you for keeping up this site and deconstructing so many
damaging e-mail messages. 80 - 90% of the e-mails I receive from friends
and family contain false information. I hope by tactfully sending them
references to your site I can encourage them to check their own facts on
widely-disseminated e-mail messages before sending them on. No luck yet,
but I'll keep trying!

Comment:
I just want to voice my appreciation for the work Snopes does. Because
your research is so thorough, it is authoritative, credible, and best of
all, irrefutable. It is a great relief to be able to put an end to these
chain emails of bigotry by sending the sender the link to the real goods
on your site, putting the lie to these so-called "unreported news
stories".

Thank you, and please keep up the good work!

Comment: Found your site and signed up immediately for the newsletter.
Rambling round, I've been extremely impressed by the quality of writing I
find here. (Writer myself.) It's always nice to hear that someone thinks
one writes well, so I wanted to pass on to Barbara "varying middle names"
(a delightful trope) M. that your writing is, indeed, sublime, and thanks
for all your hard work.

Comment: I just want to thank you for all your work on getting the story
"straight". I must come to your site many times a week. Twice yesterday
and once today for instance. I refer the sender of the message to check
their facts at your site. Where else can we go to find out the real
story? Thanks again for giving us a place to find out what is true and
what is false!

Comment: Just want to compliment Barbara Mikkelson on her article about
the dog, Reggie, who was supposedly given up by a soldier, Paul Mallory.

Your research was complete, and your comments about your conclusion were
beautiful and accurate.

Great job, Barbara Mikkelson! Thank you so much

Comment: THANK YOU!! I for one appreciate the diligent effort your website
puts for to sort through all the random information circulating the
internet via email, text message, facebook & other social networking site
to name a few.
I've come to totally rely on snopes.com to help me try & put an end to so
much erroneous information & fear mongering that keeps floating around the
web. Too many people want to believe everything they read. Even newspapers
& news tv aren't reliable these days. I'm a skeptic & an innocent both. I
try to rely on my gut instinct. Half the stuff I receive has so many red
flags of B.S. its amazing the there are people that will send this stuff
on. And the saddest part is, when asked where they got the information
from, their response is usually just that someone sent it to them & it
said to forward---so they did. HONESTLY!!! Sometimes I'm amazed the human
race has existed as long as it has. And even sadder, it seems the more
bizarre & absurd, the more likely they are to forward the stuff. But when
presented with the information you've posted through your hard work &
research, whether you prove the information true, false or part true/part
false???? They debunk your information that I repost. People never cease
to amaze me.
Sorry about rambling.
I am very sincere in my appreciation & gratitude to your interest in fact
or fiction to rumors. And admire your fortitude for the truth!!
Young at heart Grannie in Kansas loves you!

Comment: A few years ago I'd read the article in Reader's Digest about you
folks, and just want to thank you for your time in researching some of the
rumors and stories flying about. I hear many of them and always refer
friends and acquaintences to your site. With all the rumors with the
resultant emotional hysteria about "Obamacare", illegal aliens and social
security, I found your articles most enlightening, and probably saved my
mother from sending a donation to some organization that promised to send
the "petition" to "save" social security from illegal aliens. Keep up your
great work. Nice to know that someone is watching and actually looking for
the truth.

Comment: Thank you for checking into, confirming, and expanding upon the
Cody Green story. It is inspirational and you did a great job researching
it and making the whole story known beyond the message that has been
making the rounds on the Internet.

Whenever I see an email with some tale or cause or call to action, I check
with Snopes first. And I recommend you to everyone because you all are
thorough, detailed and willing to bust or uphold anything. Good job and
please keep it up!

Comment: Love your site.
My politically unsophisticated acquainatances often send me one of the oft
circulated hoax mail and rather than have to debate or rebut each part of
such emails, its nice to be able to simply refer them to your site and its
also great for my blood pressure.

Comment: Thanks for what you do. It is a wonderful site. Bravo!
If ONLY the idiots who forward this crap every day would take the time to
verify it, you would be OUT OF BUSINESS! ;-)

Comment: Hello,

my name is XXXXX. I heard about your site while listening to public radio
about three years ago. I just wanted to thank you for your work here. My
grandma just shared a message with me about Starbucks not supporting the
troops and naturally I believed it. Curiously, I googled "starbucks war"
and your site lead me to learn that this is just another falsehood that
exists in the public thought today. Again, thanks for the clarification
and for what you folks do here.

a source of clear, honest, unbiased, and thorough factual reporting. With

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Comment: regarding the article "Brazilian Oil"

I just want to say thank you for making me more educated, more informed,
more non-partial, more fair in my opinions, and a better judge of events.

I applaud your enormous efforts to fact-check claims, and your research. I
can't really tell you how glad I am that someone like you exists to save
us from the fact-twisting propaganda that someone like Glen Beck is
abusing.

Thanks again, and please keep up the great work.
