Comment: Thank you Snopes! Anytime I get an email that doesn't sound
quite right, I always come to your site to check it. I appreciate the
research that you do so I can find out so quickly!

Comment: Thanks so much for all the accurite information you share with us
all.
It has helped me to no end - I no longer forward any radical sounding
emails without checking the story through Snopes.com.
This is truly a great service you do, not only for the internet, but for
avoiding the millions of lies from being redistributing as truth!
Keep up the great work.

Comment: Your site is, hands down, THE BEST THING TO EVER HIT THE NET!!

You provide an invaluable service to all users of the Internet, ferreting
out scams, lies and half-truths.

THANK YOU! Please keep up the good work! So much bandwidth is wasted from
things like, "Send this e-mail to 40 people so little Joey can get a new
liver!"

While most people can smell the stink of a lie right away, there are way
more people who believe anything they read on the Internet... it amazes
me.

I am your constant cheerleader, telling everyone I know to ALWAYS CHECK
WWW.SNOPES.COM!

XOXO

Comment: Thank you for your very accurate information! I have used it

Comment: Thank you so much for all that you do. I appreciate all of your
hard work and research. I refer people to your site all of the time.
Mostly the ones that continually send me the chain email urban legends.

Comment: I just want to thank you for this website. Any spam that comes
across my email with warnings of this or that, I check out snopes and
usually report back to the sender of the email as well as all the
recipients what you have reported.

Comment: Thank you so much for researching all the emails that come
through cyberspace. Some are doozies and I am glad to find out on
Snopes.com that they are Urban Legends. I appreciate the work that's done
on Snopes.com.

Comment: Just wanting to thank you guys for having this site.

I refer people to it all the time, after they've passed on some junk e
mail or other.

A million thanks from the other side of the world!

There are too few of us not susceptible to bullshit.

Cheers

Comment: I am sure you must receive thousands of these, but
T H A N K Y O U V E R Y M U C H!!!!!!!
I have lost count of how many times good-intentioned folks have sent
hoaxy, horrific, panic-riddled and ultimately ridiculous stuff to me. I
have made it a regular process to run any and everything "odd" through
your site...and then usually will send the Snopes.com link to the
near-panicked person that sent me the goofy stuff. Most often it is
either my poor, computer-challenged Mom or my
"getting-the-hang-of-this-stuff" Dad...although HE has taken to checking
your site himself now :-) Both are 70+ and worry about me and the "11
kids".
So I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate that you took this task
on - it is a great service to the computer-cruising world.

Comment: I appreciate your report about Reggie (or Tank) the dog. The
story was heartwarming and when I searched for its veracity on your
website and found it to be false I was somewhat disheartened.

But the manner in which you gently stated the facts and thoroughly
investigated even the remotest possibilities of it being true shows your
attention to detail as well as your love for the American soldier. This
was climaxed by your final paragraph reminding the reader of the awesome
debt we owe to those serving our country.

For a website which most people go to for a true or false report, you went
above and beyond the call to honor the intent of the story as well as
those whom the story uplifts.

Comment: Thanks for what you do. The urban myths (lies) are flying
around the internet. Unfortunately, many people don't know enough to fact
check them and accept them at face value.

Of course, people will believe what they want to believe. I guess there
is no way to stop the pollution of cyberspace with deliberate lies, but at
least you give us who like to be reality based some ammo.

Comment: This site is wonderful and many more people should check out
things before they send them to everyone in the world because most people
don't use the common sense God gave them to realize that it won't work
that way.
Thanks for the help on checking out stupid emails.

comprehension to the masses! I always check the facts and your site is
definitely a major source of correct information.

Comment: Dear Snopes,

I use your website more than any. I receive a large amount of email from
friends and relatives that get passed from person to person and most of it
seems far fetched. I hate to get mail that makes false claims and the
sender is asking me to pass it along. I always check your site before I
send anything on to another. Thank you so much for keeping me honest.

Comment: I just wanted to take the time to tell you how important this
site is to me! As a librarian, I've used it as a valuable resource for
years. As a friend, I've helped stop an awful lot of ridiculousness being
spread around with the help of this site. As a loving daughter, I've
helped my mom (a breast cancer survivor) reduce a great deal of
unnecessary added stress derived from receiving advice from well-meaning
friends that has served to terrorize her in the past. (No, mom, you will
not have a relapse by using deodorant.)

So, during this traditional season of thanks, I offer my heartfelt
gratitude to the editors of this site. A toast to you and this labor of
love!

Comment: I just wanted to thank you for this site and for what you do.
This is where I go when I get one of those e-mails that is too good
(weird, bad etc) to be true. I just got the e-mail about the hand
sanitizer and the 4 year old Halle and trust me now that I have confirmed
it on your website, that e-mail is going straight to my daughter-in-law.

Thanks for all your hard work.
