 This is an email from the owner of Snopes.com via the Urban-legends yahoo 
group that they started and moderate. I've been a member of that group for 
about ten years -- give or take  --  and this is what she was sending out 
this fall whenever their motives and backgrounds were being questioned.

I will warn that the gist of the links deal with the political aspects of 
the recent election , but the article also delve into a bit of their 
background. PLEASE don't read the articles and then come back here to debate 
the politics. I just thought I'd pass along what comes from Snopes.  Which, 
in a way is ironic in itself lol.
