Comment: Snopes Customer Service,

When I attempted to register, the form was stopped saying that I failed to put in my real name!! But I cannot find a box in which to list my name.

Also, your form makes manadatory that I forward a photo of myself??? What possible reason could you have for demanding or needing my photo????

I do not understand the computer jargon in which you have listed in parts of the form.

I am a retiree who uses the basic fundamentals of the computer. Recently, I have been chastised because I "failed" to check emails sources for correctness with Snopes. But I am finding it difficult to register with your site.

Please direct in the format of proper registration. The second form has not been sent because, due to no fault of my own, I cannot comply with that which I do not understand. Thank you.

It's not often you see someone take three shots at punctuation and get all of them wrong.

Uh, snopes, have you read some of the entries in this forum? Some people really do think period is a dirty word.

Um...the sign wasn't up when I registered, but now I see that I am actually a whole bunch of IQ points short. Can I stay or should I return my membership card?

Wait another several months, and try again.

Comment: What can I say? I've made many civil attempts over many months to
become part of your vaunted community, and have been met with nothing else
other than silence. I have requested that you reply to my concerns, to no
avail whatsoever. I have attempted to be abrasive in order to at least
gain your attention, and even in this regard I have failed utterly. I have
no other option but to assume that you folks are precisely the assholes
that you project yourselves to be by virtue of your reticence. If it is
your desire to create enemies, then I assure you that you are making great
strides toward this questionable goal. I just cannot imagine why.

Comment: THE E-MAIL ADDRESS THAT YOU SAY IS ANOTHERS IS MINE !!!!

I HAVE TRIED TO REGISTER 6 TIMES AND GET ALL KINDS OF WRONG ENTERED DATA.

I HAVE HAD THIS E-MAIL ADRESS FOR OVER A YEAR.

IF YOU REALLY NEED A PHOTO I CAN SEND YOU ONE VIA MY CELLPHONE OR SCAN ONE
IN OR USE MY DRIVERS LICENSE.

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. CALL ME AT XXX XXX XXXX AND WALK ME THROUGH
THIS REGISTRATION.

IT APPEARS THAT YOU ASSUME EVERYONE IS OUT TO SCAM OR USE YOU.

I ENETERED MY REAL NAME, REAL LOCATION, REAL EVERYTHING.

WHEN IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AT A VERY HIGH LEVEL A FELONY ARREST REPORT WAS
EASIER TO FILL OUT. THAT WAS IN THE 60's

HERE IS THE ODD BALL THING, I GIVE YOU MY DATA TO BE READ BY A PERSON AT A
P/c WHO I DO NOT KNOW BUT MY DATA IS NOW THEIR DATA. MY FBI FRIEND TOLD ME
THAT 95% OF ALL CYBER STUFF STOLEN IS FROM WITHIN A COMPANY NOT LIKE THE
MOVIES.

YOU WANT ME TO TRUST YOU, BUT YOU APPEAR TO REJECT ME. IT IS GIVE & TAKE.
THE 95% IS NOT AN URBAN LEGEND BUT HARD FACT.

PS: I really would like to use my own username & password because I have
to many now. I have ID Theft insurance so I do not care if I get hacked.
In fact i have 2 companies,
1-800HOTLINE & ALLSTATE INS. as a rider on my renters insurance. Another
stat is "hackers win" NO LEGEND, look at the porn webmasters, they seem to
get through everything

Is the registration process so much more complicated than it was when I registered 3 1/2 years ago, or are these people really so dumb they're having that much trouble figuring it out?

I think part of the problem is that too many people nowadays think they're entitled to instant gratification. They register, wait 15 seconds, and, when they can't log in, go ballistic and fire off idiotic e-mails like the one submitted by our friend, who thinks that SHOUTING will make snopes take him/her more seriously.

Comment: SINCE I AM OLD SCHOOL AND IT IS CLEAR THAT YOU ARE NEW SCHOOL, I VIEW YOU ATTITUDE AS THIS, SO WE MESSED UP Colton's LOGIN AND REGISTRATION, WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AS MEMBER, WHAT IS MESSING UP JUST 1. THIS WAS A QUOTE FROM A CYBER THIEF WHO IS SERVING TIME IN A FEDERAL JAIL, NOT FOR MESSING OVER A PERSON BUT FOR GRAND THEFT. HE BROKE INTO A BANK ON A SUNDAY HOLLIDAY.

YOUR SITE WAS HIGHLY RECOMENDED FROM A 30 YEAR WEBMASTER WHO IS SUPER AND SHE IS NICE. BOTTOM LINE MY MEDICARE NURSE IS A WITNESS TO ALL OF THIS . YOU KNOW WELL NOT A THING WILL MATTER IF I GET DUMPED ON OR NOT, THAT ALONE MAKES ME WONDER. ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS JUST SIMPLY "get in" AND IT WAS LIKE BREAKING THROUGH A CONCRETE WALL. I WONDER IF YOU TRUST EACH OTHER??

WHAT GOES AROUND REALLY DOES COME AROUND.

If the tables were turned then how would you feel??
