Thanks for posting this. If only more people knew about! Most of the e-mail stories and "unusual photos" are urban legends, doctored photos, and untrue embellishments of partial facts. Many "missing child" e-mails are hoxes as well! My favorite part of is the "glurge gallery" which pokes a little fun at all the corny e-mails that go around and around (some I've gotten at least 20 times!) Keep spreading the word and we'll all get less spam and nonsense!

My daughter and her boyfriend are both graduates from UT (Texas) and work in web related businesses. They say to go to snopes to see if it's real, and don't believe everything you read on the internet! My problem is that you are a part of the internet.

Adding Melamine in milk reduces milk content and it is cheaper than milk so it lowers capitalization costs. It can give the business man more profit!
