Comment: Hi,

I registered at a web site called snopes.com. Supposedly, they check out chain emails for accuracy. If you get an email and want to see if the message is true or false, this site says that they investigated it.

It might be interesting or even helpful.

Okay, newbies, confess: who was this?

Comment: Margie

Hate to break the news, but this is a hoax.

Check it out: http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/wtcsurvivor.asp

The www.snopes.com web site is the authority on urban legends, hoaxes, etc. I subscribe to their monthly newsletter with the latest additions to the list.

Whew! Now you can have a nice day!

Did Lindsay get off OK? Be sure to let me know when she safely arrives in town. Even if we may not be first on her list of people to call, we would like to know that she got to the area OK.

It's okay ... no one who drinks Budweiser is a beer drinker either.

Comment: isn't this GREAT...and you are right, it didn't get publicized, but i checked it out on www.snopes.com and it's TRUE! God bless courageous judges like this one, who are not afraid to speak the TRUTH...too bad that this wasn't on TV so the general public (and any terrorist cells luring in our country) could hear it.

Comment: Dot........go down a short way on this and you will fiind a thing on 411 calls and registering your cell phone on the no call list. I guess it's not true! The 411 is true but we do not have to register our cell phones??? You might want to pass this on to the other people who think you do.

Comment: I checked it it is true. If you want to read the history of the whole
procedure go to your search engine and type Snopes.com Then go to search
and type in Christmas stamp for Islam or something like that and the info
will come up. I use this site to check everything but I failed to check this
as I thoroughly believe that our country is dumb enough to honor Islam. And
they are. I hate it and will not buy it. Love will get back to you
tomorrow. Remember when your car wasn't working and you were all upset. Well
I got a letter and I need some very important old info and guess what -- all
was lost in a flood. Can't find anything. Dam

Comment: Hey Pat,
How are you? I checked out this information on snopes.com and apparently it is not accurate. I'm sending you the url for this story so you can see it. It's a very interesting article.
Thanks,

Comment: Hi Greg. How is everything going? We spent the last two nights in Killarney. It rained really hard yesterday (we have been very lucky because that has been the only day so far) so we spent the day walking the town, doing some shopping and having lunch at a local pub and then going back to another pub later for a baileys and coffee (Dad had an irish coffee). We drove around the Ring of Kerry today. I would liken it highway 1 up by Carmel. It's not the same view but it is the same in that it is a beautiful drive. We then drove to Listowel where we are spending the night tonight and then taking a ferry in the morning (short ride) saving us a lot of driving time around an inlet. The B&B in Killarney was really nice and they had a black and white dog named Toby! We have a few more days to do what comes our way and then we will be back to reality. We are fine and hope that you are doing the same. Hope to see you in a few days.

Love,

Mom & Dad

P.S. Have fun at your Christine Todd Whitman event tomorrow.

Comment: Hi Joan,

I have read this before. I wasn't sure if it was true or not so I went on this web site (Snopes) It lists all the so-called claims like the rapist one you sent. I received this website from a friend. I sometimes tend to believe what I read and know that is not smart! I hope you can get info from this website. It is really interesting. The article about the rapist is not on the pages that you can view here but I did a search using the words: rapist returns money and a big article came up stating that this was false. Apparently this claim has been circulating for a couple of years. I hope you find this website useful...I have!

Love, Norma

A lot of times, Snopes speculates that something is not exactly right, so if its a good story, I'll send it on for the enjoyment. Ben
