Nah, too easy.

Still no? Sheeeit...

Now cut that out! I finally figured out a way to get my husband to leave me alone and you're going to give it away and ruin everything! Okay, ladies, let's go to the secret thread only we can see and come up with a new password. [Wink]

You must believe, my child. Believe, and pray.

Repeat after me:

Our Father, who art in California
David be thy name.
Thy ULs spun
Thy be undone
On Snopes as they art on the ULMB.

Give us this day our Daily Snopes
And forgive us our skepticism
As we forgive those who forward ULs to us.
(well, not really.)

And lead us not into gullibility
But deliver us from glurge.
Amen.

Yeah, that's generally what happens when you put in the wrong password.

But if you didn't get a prompt for a password, how did you input the wrong one?

This reminds me of the time my sister and I were in Panama City Beach, FL, and two teenagers ran a stop sign and almost hit us. One of the girls yelled out the window, "Learn how to fuckin' drive, old lady!" It sounded like "fuck an' drive." I yelled back, "Nice trick if she could do it!" Hey, we weren't that old! I was fifty and she was forty.
Yeah, I know. Off topic. [Frown]

Comment: I've always enjoyed your site and have referenced it many times
in response to dubious messages that were forwarded to me, but I am
concerned about your Snopes Community. I was directed there after a google
search for "Snopes" and words from a recent warning message I received.
The posts to Snopes Community are mostly biased opinions without factual
foundation and I'm afraid that your links to the forum and your name on
the page will damage your credibility. I also got the impression that some
of the pages were loaded with one-sided political opionions, so I believe
that you are possibly being unintentionally used by some semi-organized
groups who want to spread their biased messages via your website (and with
the help of your good reputation).

Please review the material being posted and judge for yourself if it is
contributing to or detracting from your efforts to spread truth.

Is this person seriously complaining about the opinions on a message board? Does this person not understand the concept of what a message board is?

wait, you mean the purpose isn't to read non-sequitur threads of conversation?

they're right, that does suck. I've wasted far too much time using it for a purpose for which it was not intended.
