Comment: Re: your article squashing the claim that months with 31 days
having 5 Fridays,Saturdays, and Sundays is something that occurs only
every 800+ years or so, is excellent, but it too contains an error. Your
article states that in order for these five weekends to occur the month
must begin on a Saturday. Actually, the month must begin on a Friday. You
may wish to send out another report to that effect so this issue will be
settled once and for all.

Comment: More and more people are telling me that I can't use Snopes to
prove or disprove something because it has a liberal-leaning bias. Today
when I checked whether congressmen and their families don't have to repay
student load, you said False. However, upon reading it, even you say they
are forgiven up to $60,000 of loans. Clearly, the statement is either True
or Party True, but clearly not False.

I don't think I can trust you any longer and neither should anyone else. I
lecture to over 400 Big Ten university students each week and they are not
going to be happy about this.

Comment: According to your article entitled "CELLING YOUR SOUL", it states
"FALSE" that cell phones were not going to be targetted by telemarketers.
If that is the case, why is it my husband received two calls from 2
different telemarketers on his cell phone?

Comment: What were you hoping to accomplish with your Dhimmitude posting?
You knew it was a complete lie:

http://www.factcheck.org/2010/05/dhi...lim-exemption/

http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/gov...e_mandate.html

It's as much poison as it is lies. It panders to religious intolerance. It
makes health care legislation to be a complete fraud. It speaks of
political leadership as con-artists. It implies we are stupid for letting
it slip by us. And it's so sad. What were you hoping to accomplish? It's
just so stinking sad.

Comment: The page about the photographer who was killed by a bear has the
assault described as "bovine," when bears are clearly URSINE. Please fix.

Comment: Tyson Foods and the Muslim holiday.

Your article verifies that Tyson Foods has cancelled a paid holiday for
Labor Day and initiated a paid holiday for a Muslim holiday observance.

At www.tysonfoods.com click "contact us" and then click on the American
flag. Also you can call Tyson foods' customer service ,reference this
subject and they will inform you what they are doing to get the word out
that you are printing a LIE.

This is not the first time that Snopes has been very, very wrong about
something. In the past Snopes has not printed a retraction that I have
ever seen.

Comment: Hi - I have a right-wing friend who is always sending me the
inevitable lies, and I regularly use Snopes to refute him and his mailing
list. However, it appears Snopes is wrong about this particular item. In
Wikipedia's link to the actual audio file of the speech, and Roosevelt
does in fact say, "so help us God" at the end of the line. I considered
that it might have been a doctored file, but it really sounds legit - a
slight pause at the end of the clause, and then on to the phrase. Please
check it out - I don't want to be citing something incorrect nor do I want
to give him ammunition by citing Snopes if Snopes is incorrect.

Comment: Snopes states that Regina Brett "Lessons Life Taught Me" as being
90 when she wrote this. Regina's own web page says that she was 45 when
she wrote 45 Lessons Life Taught Me. She says she's only 50 now....Snopes
says she's 90!

Comment: Your commenst of Cancer being attracted to Sugar is extremely
misleading and false.

From
http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/20..._deja_vu_a.php
"To put it briefly, many cancers (approximately 60-90%) favor glycolysis,
even in the presence of adequate oxygen for oxidative phosphorylation,
leading to a voracious appetite for glucose."

What edible forms turns into glucose? Sugar.

Nice lie you are saying on the Cancer Update - seems that snopes is the
perfect tool to push an agenda

Comment: Snopes reported that they had thoroughly researched the Michelle
Obama story in the same way they authenticate every story. They said it
was TRUE. This seriously discredits every other story that snopes has
supposedly researched. I doubt that you will ever admit your mistake,
since you always claim you are so thorough in your investigations. What a
bunch of bullshit artists you are.

Your stories are nothing but a bunch of phony yellow journalism. I will
forward your story to everyone I know about Michelle being proven pregnant
by snopes. Several people already know about this and we will seek to pop
your pompous balloon claiming to be the final truth in all matters.

----------------------------------

Comment: Snopes lied and said that Michelle Obama was pregnant causing the
resignation of the Press Secretary. I can now see that Snopes just makes
up crap and is not at all truthful in their investigations. Your
crediblility is nil you just make up your own phone and unresearched
stories just like National Enquirer. I challenge you to go ahead and
adimit that everything you publish is a big lie or just made up
explanation. Go ahead. I am so very disappointed in you. I will let
everyone I know about your fake story as I have copies of your fake
Michelle Obama story.

Lemme guess. When you pointed out that it was marked "false", they accused you of having changed it in response to their e-mail, right?

Comment:
RE: Asteroid close to Earth

From YUahoo article: "The asteroid will make its closest approach at 1:14
p.m. EDT (1714 GMT) on June 27 and will pass just over 7,500 miles (12,000
kilometers) above the Earth's surface, NASA officials say. At that
particular moment, the asteroid which scientists have named 2011 MD
will be sailing high off the coast of Antarctica, almost 2,000 miles
(3,218 km) south-southwest of South Africa."

Your site claims asteroid within 35 MILLION miles of Earth would cause our
anhilation.

Are you wrong on this or is NASA??

Comment: You have posted a warning about Gerber Baby Food ( Banana's ) to
have possible glass in it, and the amount of Number's in the Bar Code does
not match how many numbers there are on a jar, so how do we know which
ones are really on recall for the glass ?

Comment: On your article Speech Therapy at the end of the article you have
the name Dennis Prager as a high school principal. Dennis Prager is a Los
Angeles radio host and a writes a weekly column for many publications. The
context of the subject is right down Mr. Pragers ally. There maybe another
Dennis Prager but I bet you have the right guy just the wrong occupation.

One question. If he is in critical condition, why oh why is he outdoors, talking on the phone or otherwise. Most hospitals I've visitied keep their critical patients inside where it is safe.

Comment: Pardon! Your reporting that the presidential dog Bo flew on a

another small jet with its' handler and other staffers. So please don't
say it is FALSE.

Comment: FYI - in your article "impregnable defenses", you say that
nursing a baby exclusively prevents ovulation as long as the baby does not
have a bottle of formula or solid food. This is usually the case, but not
always true. There are many women who have ovulated and/or become
pregnant 2 months (or less!) after birth who were exclusively nursing.
Please do update this!
