Check Out The Truth Of Internet Rumors – Warnings On Snopes.Com

downloadDo you know about Snopes.com?  It’s a site where you can check out internet warnings and rumors to see if they are true.

From Wikipedia:Snopes.com /ˈsnps/, also known as the Urban Legends Reference Pages, is a websitecovering urban legends, Internet rumors, e-mail forwards, and other stories of unknown or questionable origin.[2] It is a well-known resource for validating and debunking such stories in American popular culture,[3] receiving 300,000 visits a day.[4]

I used to pass on all this stuff automatically because they usually involve somebody’s safety, but then I found out about Snopes.  Now I check out stuff before I post it or forward it.

Out of the last nine warnings I checked only one happened to be true.  The rest were hoaxes, some going back for a decade or more!

Perhaps if we catch this stuff and don’t pass it on some of the nuts who send out these hoaxes will stop.
