Comment: I was sent the following email and snopes.com reports that the
contents are "false".

The comment in many cases are so general that I cannot summarily dismiss
that all the comments are inaccurate. At best you could say that because
the comments are not attributed to any one individual, there is no way to
verify the comments were actual published sentiments in 1955.

Labeling the entire email as "False" is painting with a very broad brush.

Alligator

Comment: Your "Later Gator" article says that alligator found in Chicago
river is false. You might want to reinvestigate, they've caught several
in the past month.

Comment: I read several of your posts saying that the information about
Palestinian refugees coming to america is false. Yet you do not post
anything about the real truth. I found information about 1350
Palestinians coming from Iraq to Irvine, CA and Omaha Nebraska. There are
also Palestinians going to S. America, Canada and other places. Why dont
you report what is true about the topic so that you can be balanced?
email me and I will be glad to send you the many links I have found to
back this up.

Comment: In researching the email that was sent out about removing crosses
from federal cemetaries, I noted some of the comments that you made that
seemed contradictory to one another. First it was wrong for a judge to
"Sneak" (I think it is sad that it comes to this if indeed this was the
case) in a monument depicting the Ten Commandments and then you state that
it is OK for the depiction of Moses to be on the US Supreme Court Building
because he was a Law Giver?????? What exactly did he give us - THE TEN
COMMANDMENTS and for your information in case you forgot Moses was a JEW
and how many different Christian religions uphold the commandments given
to a JEW. I think it is a sad state of affairs when something so good and
so moral is looked upon as something so wrong. In addition how can you or
anyone else possibly compare a KLU KLUX KLAN Cross with a Nativity Scene,
one represents DEATH in the fowlest form and the other ETERNAL LIFE.
I am so disappointed in your comments - and don't tell me you are just
reporting the facts, I have read some of the comments you all make on your
Site, I use to enjoy looking things up but you have become SOOOOO BIASED
that I now have to go to other sites to find the truth.

Comment: On the picture of President Obama with his feet up on the desk,
if you Google "Picture of President Bush with his feet up", you will find
a picture very similar to the picture you have here. So, if you are going
to be putting images up, I think you should be fair about it. Obama is not
the first President to put his feet on that desk while having a
conversation with some of his staff.

Comment: I just read the stuff about Niagara Falls being frozen over. It
seems to be labled as "urban". However, I have several photos of the
falls with people walking over it, taken by my great grandparents. There
is no question it's Niagara Falls and I've been there many many many
times. My ancestors lived in the Niagara Falls area for many years around
the turn of the century and beyond. There is no question that the
pictures I have are authentic and taken in 1911. I strongly dispute your
claims that it's a fake or whatever. The photos I have are rare and
apparently there are very few on the internet right now. There is one
photo that does resemble a part of one photo I have on hand.

Knowing about waterfalls and rivers in general (and growing up near a
river too), it is true that no river really completely freezes over in a
really cold winter (it'd have to have a long sustained cold spell for that
to happen!), because there is always some water flowing underneath all
that ice. That is true with waterfalls. So while it's true that the
waterfalls probably never really freeze over, the pictures I have show the
water complelely frozen over the falls as well as on the river above and
below the falls. That does not mean that there is no water flowing
underneath all that ice. Again, I strongly disagree with the claims made
on Snopes about the photos being a fake or doctored.

Comment: If this is NOT the Davil Hall who plays the 'doctor' on CSI
LasVegas, the photo looks just like him, so you may want to check it out
and see if the wrong one was posted to this article. I am totally in
favor of his thoughts and wish more people would come to this conclusion.

Comment: Just read your comments on the rumor about Coach Robinson
Michelle Obamas brother. I have just one question for the school in
question. If the money you received from the government was suppossed to
be used for teachers and professors, why was it used to pay for a
basketball coach?

Comment: On the false report concerning Michelle Obama's law license, the
ARDC report of her Attorney Record clearly says, "attorney is on COURT
ORDERED inactive status." Not only is her Illinois registration status
"voluntarily inactive," she is also NOT AUTHORIZED to practice law." All
of that sounds like a plea agreement. With all due respect, this report
stinks and no amount of parsing words will make it smell any better.
It sounds to me like she did something she shouldn't have, and worked a
deal to avoid revelations of her misdeed: She was ordered to surrender her
license "voluntarily" and as a result agreed not to practice law. That's
not good.

Comment: I find the fact finding information you have on the term
"dhimmitude" to be highly sensationalized and most probably planted by
someone who hates President Obama and his administration. It is most
likely 90% incorrect as well. Any time I see the word "Obamacare"
written/spoken I know it's author is a right wing nut, listens to Limbaugh
and Hannity and spends most of their TV watching Fox news. All full of hot
air. I'd double check the facts on this one as you're contributing to
continuing Internet fables.

Comment: You said the Imam Ali poster in Houston was about the
death day of Imam ali but everything on the internet
says he died on Jan 26. No where near Sept. 11.
I understand they have a different calendar but
Our calendar Sept 11 is the attack and Our calendar
Jan.26 was no where near Sept. 11.
Why have you altered the facts?
Look him up on Wikipedia or 10 other places on the web
and he died Jan 28.

"Everything on the internet" apart from Wikipedia it seems, which is something on the internet I'm led to believe.

Look Jesus managed to die twice, except he left it three days (just to show off I guess) so why couldn't this guy die twice?

You are wrong. They aren't tattoos, kids think they are. They are called
blotters. Do children run Snopes or something? Not one of you lived in the
70s and witnessed acid drops on skin or these things you think are tattoos
or stamps, which are called blotters, being placed on your skin, face
down, with a wet rage over the top?

They're used just like tattoos and do cause hallucinations if there is
correctly synthesized lsd on it.

Snopes doesn't get much wrong. Three or four things a week maybe. But this
is OUTRAGEOUSLY wrong, for the region of the story and for lsd blotters as
a whole.

Comment: In the article about--You worry me--by John Maniscalco.
You should delete the last paragraft.
You question the intent of muslims who wave the US flag and then conmit
violence. It is done all the time. That's how they operate. A lie by a
terriost is the truth for his cause. Even spies operate under this same
assumption. That's why muslim terriost dress as women and hide guns in
mosques.
Up until about 1650, even Christians did the same thing.

What? Christians hid their guns in mosques? Not particularly convenient for them was it, particulary during the Crusades? Were guns even invented before 1650?

Never underestimate the dangers of a wet rage...
