Comment: I used to spend a lot of time looking around your site.
I've noticed you've sold out to add agencies.
I understand sites need money to stay afloat, but when I'm reading an
article about a 5 Yr old girl w/ cancer & there's an ad selling new
Lincolns, it's a little disheartening.
Please consider where you put these ads.

Comment: When talking about energy content, could you please start using the international version of kcal, as using Cal, or even cal when meaning 1000 calories, can be hard to understand for us non-US readers.

Comment: I think your service is of great value to those of us perusing the internet. However, I disagree with U.L.'s latest web paper wherein "Slow Dance" is referred to as a "sappy poem". I happen to think the piece is a sensitive reflection of tenderness and love one can feel, especially for a child. With so much garbage regalling our senses on a daily basis, can't we leave a small opening for something decent?

I also don't think that your site should be so blatent when it comes to editorial comment.

Comment: I just read the article "Muslim EID Stamp" and i, being a muslim,
am outraged that the rumour says that all those attacks are the faults of
muslims. it is racism, and i want you to put on your description of it
that this e-mail is a pile of bullcrap, that you can't blame muslims for
all those attacks.

Comment: Hi, I am a student who likes this type of stuff but when you say
"horror stories" I think of blood and guts and stuff like that. Well some
of these stories are boring and lame like the one about the man from out
of town who got pulled over for speeding, well most people would expect
him to drive off and these stories are suspose to be scary. I'm just
suggesting that you put scary and thiller stories in the horror section
and lame ones somewere else.

Thanks for your time. Goodbye

Sorry, but there isn't a separate section for lame stories. BUT there is a section for lame e-mails. Yours has been placed in it.

Comment: Hi.
On the recall for Perrigo store brand Tylenol, you are showing an icon of
a gelcap, those are not involved at all in the recall.
Only the caplets, the look is very different.
I called perrigo, after seeing that pictures, since my mom, [88 yrs. old]
take the gelcaps and I bring her some from the U.S. every year, about 10
bottles. They are cheaper here, so I get her some.
Anyway, please change the picture, it scared me, she takes them everyday
and I had to stay on the line quite awhile to talk to a real person.

Comment: I feel this entry is misplaced in a "naughty" section. It should
be in the gruesome section.

Comment: I like your site, and have it on my favorites list. Recently I
have noticed a number of your articals tagged with the white dot-
"unclassifiable veracity"- if so many are then why post them? Shoot I
know a ton of rumors and urban legends that MAY or MAY NOT be true and you
would never find out. I like seeing more TRUE OR FALSE reports- because
even the false ones are still entertaining because most times they can be
explained. But the stupid white dots- too many in my opinion- have no
place.

Comment: Please consider changing the title of your currently labeled "old
wives' tales" to "old tales". I'm sure husbands told tales too.

Yes, of how stupid they thought what their wives were saying was, but had to conform to it anyways [Big Grin]

Yeah, and then their wives would say 'So, you come up with a pithy bit of memorable lore!" And the husbands would start up some analogy about the last time the Cubs won the World Series, and the whole thing just fell apart.

Comment: Personally I dont think you should have anything to do w/the
missing children stories or any thing like that unless they are purley
hoax's or untruths. Because otherwise your site could give the wrong
immpression for instance posting the missing child alert on here gave me
the impression that it was a hoax and not that it was true but had been
cancelled. I mean isnt annoncing the alert cancld something that the
alert site should take care of?

I was under the impression that this site was for scams and hoax's to be
brought to light.
