Whenever I see people posting articles on Facebook they will go on and on about whether snopes says it's true.

Why the **** do people treat snopes like it's the end all be all of info?

Because snopes says that snopes is universally regarded as the truth.

Because there are plenty of uninformed morons out there who read a story on the internet (even from a noncredible source) and think it's true without any independent verification. Snopes is that independent verification.

I checked it out after the link was posted. It looks like a horrible site for many reasons. Not the least of which among many is that the content does interest me at all. A bunch of unproven urban legends? Sounds boring and doesn't appeal to me. Why WOULD I know about it?

I wouldn't put all of your faith into Snopes. They have been wrong on a few things in the past, so I tend to take anything they say with a grain of salt unless I can verify it with numerous other sources.

But than again, I do that with everything that can't be proven 100% without a shred of doubt automatically.

Skepticism FTW!

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

What is snopes.
A definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation.... which makes it all the more surprising to find out that people are considering so much of what is written there as true.

Maybe you should get better friends, TS...

Edit:
Or at least block posts about snopes.com.
