Didn't I read about this guy trying to send a fax by holding the paper to the monitor and pressing send? At least he was smart enough to send an e-mail to you.

Comment: We need help with unsubscribing to Earthlink. We never did
actually susbscribe to it, but it keeps interfering with our emails and
our attachments.

Please tell us how we can eliminate it from our internet on our computer.

Actually, it does not appear on our computer programs, but it keeps
popping up!!!

If we have been charged for Earthlink at all, we need a refund
immediately.

Please help us get get released from Earthlink.

I don't know if anyone can rememeber something from nearly five years ago, but if you can, what did Nonny mean by this? Was this Newell person well known for that sort of humor?

I need a ULMB history lesson.

It has nothing to do with the guy's posting style, WildaBeast. A newel post is the end bit of a staircase banister, useful for hanging coats on when one is too lazy to put them in the closet.

Comment: I clicked on what I thought would put a small icon on my desktop.
What I got is a large logo. It neither connects with the web or responds
to anything I do. Please help me remove it entirely from my desktop or
reduce its size to a logo that is linked to your site.

Comment: My daughter wanted to place a shortcut of SNOPES on our computer
desktop. She right clicked on your website logo and thought that "set as
a desktop item" was going to do the trick. Now she has this white box
with your logo on the desktop that does absolutely nothing but take up
space. How do we get rid of it?

Lesseee....

Apache, MySQL, PHP4 or 5, and perhaps PHPMyAdmin and a couple routers.

Considering the bandwith Snopes gets, I'd add on a couple server racks too.

Run it all with Gentooooooooooooooooo.......Linux.

Comment: I created a shortcut on my Desktop for Snopes. When I tried to
use it, "Snopes.com" popped-up to cover half of my Desktop and cannot be
changed or used or deleted, even if I restart, it comes back! How do I
change it to just another shortcut on my Desktop?
