Comment: I don't want to report a rumor. I want to thank you guys for keeping the facts straight. I can only imagine how much you're having to fact check these days. Bet you're having to work a lot of overtime. Keep up the great work!
Thanks!!!!

Comment: This is not about a specific rumor. I just wanted to give feedback and thank you for being one of only TWO sites that I can find anymore that still has the integrity to fact check without bias. I can't find a single news site that isn't slanted, so I'm glad I can find the truth here! It's sad when the only two sites that are truthful are the two that deal with urban legends!

Comment: I just want to say thank you for writing an article that seems to be nearly as objective as one can be. Most "journalism" these days is far too biased. I'm neither a liberal nor a conservative and I sincerely appreciate some objectivity for a change.

Comment: Your site used to be fun to read. It was a quick reply to when my mom forwarded emails and a crackpot relative put things on facebook.
Now your job has an importance & purpose that it did not have before. Who knew it would be a vital component of democracy?
Good job, keep at it, and stay loyal to the facts.
Thanks for all you do.

Comment: Not a rumor, just a comment.
Thank you Snopes for being there in these days of information turbulence, and sorting out the reality from the crap! Also, it is refreshing that where an item is true you provide the background and rationale that explains the situation. I don't know how many of us would ever determine what to believe.
Again, THANKS!

Comment: I think that your hard work to find out what is true, and what is a lie, is important (particularly these days when lies and propaganda are being used to manipulate people).
Thank you for being there, and for everything that you do!

Comment: I do not have a rumor, I just want to say I really appreciate the work this site does. I have been reading since I was about 11 years old and loved being creeped out by the scary urban legends. I am now 27 am happy the site going strong in disproving false information, something I think is very important in our current sociopolitical climate. I hope the original founders, writers, and researchers are all doing well.

Comment: Congratulations on the big CNN story! I have been reading Snopes.com since the old days when you site was The Urban Legends Reference Pages. Your site is essential in today's climate. I can't count how many times, I have said (paraphrasing) "Have you checked on Snopes.com?" I truly hope that many more people will now check on Snopes.com.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you at Snopes.com!

Comment: No rumor to report - I just wanted to thank all of you at Snopes for being the place that anyone can go to and expect to get facts and real news. We need more folks like you in a world that's top-heavy with "fake news". Keep up the good work.

Comment: No rumors to share. Just wanted to say "thank you!" You guys are doing great work. Shining a light on all of the misinformation out there may seem like an insurmountable battle, but it is not. I too am frustrated on a daily basis by the ignorance of many people who simply want their own beliefs parroted back at them, rather than understand the objective facts.
As someone who works in PR and communicates with the media, I know many journalists that are just trying to do their jobs well and report on issues to the best of their ability. And having a site like Snopes, with no agenda but truth, is a godsend in the war against misinformation.
Thank you

Comment: Hello,
I just read an article on the history of Snopes. It would please me to let you know that I have used and valued your site for perhaps 15 years, maybe more. In the article you said you don't think your site changes anyone's mind. I would suggest that it influences the minds of people who want to know what's true. I trust what Snopes says. I heard that George Soros was behind Snopes and I'm glad to know that it's not true, that you are objective. That is what I always thought and I'm glad to be confirmed in that regard.
Your work is very much appreciated. Thanks for being there!!!!

Comment: I wasn't sure how to contact your staff but I just read the CNN article on Snopes and it was not only educational on your history as a company but getting high level media recognition must make you proud. Snopes is my go to place for rumors and so on for as long as I have had internet access. I found humor in the Right thinking you guys are lefties. Well the Right shouldn't lie so much... Thank you for your dedication to the very noble cause of fact checking.
