Comment: i just wanted to write and say "thank you" for having such an
awesome, well-informed site. my friends send me bogus warnings quite
often and my first stop after receiving them is snopes.com. most of them
are obviously untrue, but it takes your weblink to convince others of
that. i appreciate the research and validity that your site adds to my
naysaying.

Comment: I just wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU for the awesome
work and job you do here! I get so tired of the "sheep" mentality that
perpetuates these mindless urban legend emails that go around in droves!

It always gives me great joy to send a, "THINK BEFORE YOU PASS- PEOPLE"
email reply with the appropriate snopes.com link included.

Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Comment: I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for providing such a
valuable service. It seems I receive bogus warnings from friends and
coworkers nearly every day (routed to everyone in their address lists) and
I usually respond to all with a link to your article identifying the story
as false. If only I could get them to check your site before hitting the
forward button! Thanks again and Happy Holidays!

Comment: Best website ever! I use it all the time when people send me
fw's that seem either unbelievable, or which bare telltale signs of
internet erronea. i.e. the words, "needless to say" create suspicion any
time I see them in a story.

Keep up the good work. You are providing a valuable service to the world.

Comment: I just want to say - having your site to refer to consistently -
rather than buy in to all the "Suspected" plots and hoaxes - keeps me
sane - Thanks for a great site!

Comment: I have checked your site out here and there for fun things and of
course to check out some of those outrageous e-mail claims and enjoyed it
immensely. The last two days, I have been home with the flu and spent way
too much time on snopes! I just wanted to say thanks for spending the
time to do this web site. It is fun and so informative. I'm almost
through with every article and now feel like a walking e-mail in a lot of
ways!!! I just won't bother to fwd myself to 10 friends in hopes of
winning the lottery!
Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Comment: I love Snopes.com. Thank you so much for this service. I check
out all of those forwarded emails and am constantly letting my friends and
family know that they should check it out with snopes first before
forwarding me a bunch of hoaxes.

Comment: This is a fantastic site, thank you! I have so many friends and
relatives who used to forward on every stupid piece of frightening garbage
about the newest way to be kidnapped and/or killed, but I am now able to
quickly look it all up here and pass along the results of my snopes
searches... they've finally caught on and now use your site before sending
out more garbage. Thanks!

Comment: Just a message of appreciation and admiration for all you do.
Amid all the rampant inaccuracies out there, it's nice to see a force
trying to keep truth from going out of focus. I felt like a Lone Ranger
doing this by email in the 90's, combatting every fake virus alert and
myth by replying to all recipients whenever I knew enough to say. I still
do that now and then, but Snopes references seem frequently to find their
way into such replies.

Comment: Hello Sonpes.com,
I want to thank you for your wonderful website and the service you
provide to Computer world. When I first started using my computer I
recieved some emails that scared or made me cry ..thinking they were true,
now when I recieve an email with some sort of doom and gloom, I simply go
to your website and find the truth. I feel safe in knowing you are there..
Please don't ever go away.
If you do I will consider all email to be a hoax, which may lead me to
miss out on some very important information.

Comment: I am so grateful for the research you do and the integrity you
have so that I can find truth on the Internet. It is hard to tell truth
from error and I usually check it out on your site. It seems to be about
50/50 of truth and error sent to my email address. Keep up the great work
and know that your efforts are appreciated.

Comment: Just wanted to thank you for this site. I check everything
against it before forwarding it to anyone. And I'd have to say, every 8
out of 10 are fakes. Keep up the good work!

Comment: Hi! This is XXX XXXXXXXXX, from Costa Rica. I've been using
your site as a reference for my responses to every e-mail I receive from
friends, co-workers and family regarding warnings and even amazing events
(like the "Eye of God"). I wanted to thank you for that, because of you,
if I don't find the "legend" in your site, I've learned to do some
research on the web and finding enough reasons to discard the warning,
even my friends ask me to research their e-mails for them!!! Thank you!
You're awesome!!!

Comment: KUDOS to Snopes for revealing the truth about the mountains of
emails I get about missing kids, new and twisted crome trends, etc. Seems
the only thing twisted today are the people who generate these emails.
People must just not have enough to do.

Whenever I get one of these emails now, I always check your site, and 99%
of the time, they're hoaxes.

Thanks for providing a great public service.

Comment: Great site guys. Keep up the excellent work. I use this site
constantly to check the veracity of the endless e-mails i recieve that
appear incredible. Amazingly, I have a high rate of success when looking
things up on your site. I have introduced many people to this site. I
also find that more and more people already know about it. Thanks

Comment: Just want to thank you for all the expense and effort you put
into the site. I just became aware of it about 2 months ago when....I bet
you can fill in my next words....a friend busted me on forwarding a fake
email. I have really enjoyed researching and educating myself on urban
legends!

Comment: I think this website is great. I work in an office where
ridiculous e-mails fly around on a daily basis. Everyone in my office just
received the one that says typing in your atm pin number backwards alerts
the policy (which is false!)It is nice to be able to know the truth in
such a quick way. Thank you!

I frequently direct my users to your site, telling
them that if they haven't found the latest doomsday email *there*, they
haven't looked hard enough, and better not even *think* of sending it to
me (the network admin) before they have! I appreciate all that you have
done in this area to dispell, debunk, and enlighten the masses. [Smile]

Comment: I hope you understand the importance of your site. We need
factual documentation on rumors (particularly those of religous, economic,
and political nature).
There seems to be an assault on educated thought and debate in our world.
Thank you for being my shield.
I will do my best to support the advertisers on your site.

Comment: I have had nothing really to accomplish in the past few days, and
have been increasingly bored. I stumbled upon this website from a
Wikipedia article on urban legends, and just wanted to thank you, because
I've been sitting here for a few hours, clicking the "Random" button on
your homepage and reading articles just for my amusement. So, that's all,
just wanted to compliment the site and say good job. Very interesting
stuff.

is. I find her to be thorough even minded and non-condescending unlike
other writers in other similar venues. She's a true value!

Thanks for the good work; your research results are an incredible
resource, and your explanations for your conclusions are fantastic... most
sources just state their opinions, but you folks let us evaluate them for
our own purposes. Wonderful!!

information on your site to debunk horror stories - the crying baby on the
porch, "kidnapped at the mall", etc... - emailed to me by people who can't
seem to think anymore once they're online... THANK YOU!!!!

your site as a reference in order to tell all the people who send me bogus
