Snopes.com is an informational website that seeks to validate, disprove and comment on various urban legends, misinformation, rumors, old wives’ tales and the like. The site is independently owned and maintained, and has been in existence since 1995.

The site offers 43 different categories of legends and rumors ranging from autos to hurricane Katrina; these can be accessed from the homepage and from the side navigation menu on all other pages. There is also a ‘Top 15 legends’ area that draws from different categories. Each subcategory page contains a list of legends with a color next to each; this quickly identifies the legend as true, false, having multiple truth values, undetermined or having unclassified veracity. Since some of the language is folkloric or specific to the site, there is also a detailed FAQ section and glossary for further reference.

The ‘Hot 25’ link directs the visitor to a list of the 25 most talked about urban legends on the site, the ‘Randomizer’ link provides a random legend, the ‘Odd News’ section displays links from outside news sources to interesting stories, and the message board, which covers a variety of topics, requires registration for posting. Registration entails submitting an online form, validating the email used on the form and waiting for approval by the board administrator.

Visitors can also submit their own stories, photos and video clips related to an urban legend by email but this process is not automatic; each entry is thoroughly evaluated by the site administrators.
