Comment: How great it is to find a site that refutes or verifies the
validity of the many emails that go around! I usually don't bother with
them, but on occasion I do read one and then wonder if it is true or not.
It is great to be able to find a reliable source that will probe all sides
of the issue!!

Comment: this site does a great service to the web-user community. Keep it
up.

The wild west nature of the web makes it very difficult to sort out truth
from fiction--otherwise we wouldn't need Snopes. My elderly father
receives great enjoyment from reading forwarded e-mail messages about
popcorn cooked by cell phones, dangers of postage stamp glue, and Nigerian
princes, (which he passes on to me). He unfortunately has a tendency to
believe what he receives from these largely unidentified sources. And
quite frankly, I often get taken too. He gets my dander up when the
subject is politics. The latest email he sent me contained undocumented
"facts' on the evolution of social security. Once again you investigated
this one and I passed on the findings to Dad. Snopes found most of the
claims false.

Thanks for your service to the web community.

Comment: I want to show my ultimate gratitude for the content of
Snopes.com. I truly believe that Snopes has set an extremely high standard
of truth, objectivity, reasonableness, and logic in a world that very
often seems to lack any of it. Snopes has a commitment to these ideals in
a way that is extremely rare in today's media.

I am very often frustrated, as are many others, by the proliferation of
gross misinformation, lack of context, and willingness to spread false,
misguided, or inflammatory information simply for the sake of getting
people's emotions aroused for no good reason. For example, this
presidential election has been particularly abundant with stories,
e-mails, and rumors that seem too ridiculous or inflammatory to be true. I
am always happy to know that I can go to Snopes and find out the real
truth behind what is said in these pieces or shown in pictures. Snopes is
committed to the truth and not politics. I smile when I read or hear
people say that information about something can be verified on Snopes.

I am also grateful for Snopes commitment to warning people against fraud,
scams, and e-mails that play on people's emotions and potentially cause
them to do things that may be harmful to themselves or others. Hopefully,
because this website can be trusted, many people will be saved from being
harmed by these types of communications.

Please continue to do what you do and do it well. The rest of the media
would be well served to adhere to this standard.

Comment: I just want to let you know that I think you do an excellent job!
You are my source whenever a friend sends me something. I always check it
out with you to see if it's true. Don't know how you keep up with things
but keep up the good work!

Comment: Just want to thank you for your efforts in clarifying all the
untruths' that come across the internet. I hope everyone takes the
opportunity to verify the information they receive before they make any
decisions. Thanks again.

Comment: Thank you again for maintaining this site. It is a resource I
use over and over (and recommend to people who send me urban legends in
the hope they will check before they send out their various weirdnesses).
Can't tell you how much I appreciate Snopes!

Comment: Thank you so much for your site. Any time someone emails me
something that seems a little far out (& some that seem realistic) I check
with you before I forward the email to anyone else. If I receive an email
about a missing child I always check with you & if its bogus I let them
know. Thanks for your site.

Comment: I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT I THOROUGHLY ENJOY YOUR SITE. I FIND
MYSELF GOING TO IT AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK TO CHECK OUT A STORY THAT I WAS
E-MAILED OR HEARD. MY MOTHER IN LAW IS NOTORIOUS FOR SENDING ME SOME
BLATANTLY RIDICULOUS CLAIMS & STORIES AND SHE WHOLE HEARTEDLY BELIEVES
THEM. I DON'T SAY ANYTHING TO HER ABOUT IT ANYMORE (I USED TO AND SHE
STILL BELIEVES THEM), I JUST CHECK IT OUT ON SNOPES. I FIND YOU RELIABLE
AND ENTERTAINING. THANKS, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Comment: I want to thank you for this wonderful site - rumors are bad
enough but when the fly at speed of light - it is hard to know what is
true and what isn't.

So thank you for all your hard work and research!!

Comment: Thank you so very much for the valuable work you do! You've
provided me with a wonderful response to some of my more gullible
correspondents more times than I can count.
