Snopes aims to debunk or confirm widely spread urban legends. The site is
often referenced by news media and other sites, including CNN
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snopes#_note-2> FOX news
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snopes#_note-3> and MSNBC
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snopes#_note-4> The site is so comprehensive
that leading folklorist Jan Harold Brunvand
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Harold_Brunvand> has cited it as a reason
why he has never created a website of his own.
Snopes directs people to more information about various hoaxes, especially
in regard to chain <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_e-mail> e-mails.
Although they research their topics heavily and provide references
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bibliography> when possible, not all of their
sources (especially those which are personal interviews, phone calls, or
e-mails) are fully verifiable. Where appropriate, pages are generally marked
"undetermined" or "unverifiable" if the Mikkelsons feel there is not enough
evidence to either support or disprove a given claim.
An admirer of Snopes.
