Read This! Snopes it first

Any time you get something in your inbox that sounds outrageous, check out Barbara and David P. Mikkelson's excellent Snopes Web site. They've been collecting, cataloging and diligently researching claims like these for years, and are generally on top of all the latest messages by the time they make their way to the general public.

I remember when I first heard my sister used snopes as a verb. It was a little unsettling, to be honest.

My mom calls it "snoops", but she has it bookmarked, and has refrained from sending many many hoax e-mails because of it. But I am now privvy to all the ones she thinks is funny as she is perusing the main pages.
