Comment: You went way overboard on researching "Reggie" (glurge). That's
what I love about snopes, you do the work, and it's why you're the most
credible and trusted source in myth-busting history. Thank you for all you
do.

Comment: Hi,
Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your website. I use it
on a (very) regular basis, especially to verify the authenticity of many
of the emails I receive. I also encourage my friends and contacts to use
your site.
Yours is one of the most useful sites on the internet.
Thanks!

Thank you so much for the work you and other sites like yours do. I am
much smarter and more intelligent when you guys filter out the lies from
the truth. Unfortunately, most Americans jump on any popular bandwagon
that fits their agenda, true or false, and that makes them the unpatriotic
trash of America.

Thanks again for your important work.

Comment: Just want to thank you for trying to uphold the truth with all
the propaganda being circulated in emails. I've found that many people no
longer send me their questionable articles, because I always reply back
with a reference to your site. Please keep up the good work.

Comment: Just an email to thank you for a great site. I have used it for
years to point out to friends and family the error of their ways. I find
out the truth and then email the link to them. Sometimes they are so
embarrassed and won't respond or become defensive like my brother "I don't
read 'em I just send 'em". Since I have them trained now to check with
snopes when they get these odd emails it has cut down on my junk mail
tremendously. I think the proof of how many people use your site for
verification is when you get one of these silly emails and somewhere on it
someone has put
'this is true I checked it on snopes.com' as if that is the stamp of
authenticity! Keep up the great work.
PS Isn't it amazing what people will fall for just because
it is 'on the internet'!!

Comment: I use your website all the time to verify stuff people send to me
and constantly remind other contacts that they should check out stuff on
www.snopes.com before forwarding on. Also, it is just fun to look at some
of the stuff that flies through cyberspace. Thanks!

Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I think my friends are getting
very irritated with me sending them links to Snopes, but I am equally as
irritated when they send me email and have not checked the source!!
Snopes.com has saved my sanity and saved my friends from being slapped for
their stupidity! ;D

Comment: Thanks for doing a great service, particularly in these insane
times when twisted minds are trying to persuade people of the world,
especially the USA, to commit harakiri. My take is simply that the Karma
Train is always on time. Again, thanks for a great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that there is a resource to turn to that tells the truth and lifts the lid
off the garbage that is disseminated on the internet.

Comment: You two are the greatest ---- I wish I could get many fellow
e-mailers to visit your website before sending the plethora of made up,
false, and often hateful e-mails that come my way. Don't know what I
would do without your good work --- many thanks.

I HATE the viral emails that get folks fired up about things not true.
The debate in this country on just about everything even remotely
political is too tied up in fallacies. It was bad enough when I was
getting them from folks on the right. I got this one with an angry note
attached from a left-leaning friend. I was glad to be able to so quickly
set him straight and urged him to be sure to send your link on to everyone
he'd forwarded HIS message to and to whoever he got the message from.

THANK YOU! <----Shouting thank you

Comment: I cannot thank you enough for this site. I used to forward so
many hoaxes believing them to be true. now I check here before I do
anything. I cannot imagine not having snopes as my go to resource. Thanks
so much for saving so many of us from scares that were simply hoaxes.

Comment: Hello,

I've been using your site for years. I never gave much thought to who
operated it until I saw a little flash on T.V. one day. Apparently you are
a Mom & Pop organization, literaly. It all sarted as a hobby and now, a
booming business according to the report. Yea! Hard work and diligence
still gets rewarded.

Pleae, keep up the hard work and may you have much success in 'setting the
record straight' on all sorts of things. You probably don't hear it often
enough but, "THANKS".

Comment: Just want to say thanks for your invaluable website. I have used
it over and over. Just received the "flesh-eating bacteria from new
underwear from foreign countries so wash your bras ladies" e-mail,
complete with horrible pictures.

I was suspicious so checked. I always forward my Snopes results to the
sender, yet the same people keep sending the same types of things without
bothering to check themselves!
My theory is that seeing they are the same forwarders of the "pass this on
to 10 people and/or something good/bad will happen" e-mails, they suspect
that these may be false but think they had better pass them on, JUST IN
CASE!
(And one should wash new underwear before wearing anyway! )

Comment: Greetings,

I am so happy that a friend directed me to your site. I have received
various mailings in the past and currently have one now. If I had not
read your site comments on fradulent sweepstakes winnings and lotteries I
would not have recognized that it was worthless. Talk about play on
greed. I now check everything through Snopes first.

Thank you.

Count me saved by Snopes

Comment: Congratulations and thank you for an extremely valuable service
exceptionally well executed. I only need to consult you periodically, but
every time I do, I am impressed and well-served by the results. You make
the world of eager information so much more manageable.

Comment: I just wanted to say thanks. I use your site all the time to
check and verify things I receive in emails, and I'm then able to advise
friends on what is or isn't something to worry about. It saves us all a
great deal of time and worry.

So thanks very much - you're doing a really great job.
