Snopes has apparently turned into an opinion site

I guess they’ve run out of actual facts, so they come up with their own opinions about rumors instead. Today we have the cash back scam, with no proof whatsoever on whether or not it actually happens.

I’ve been seeing a lot of these “Status: Undetermined” stories lately. It makes me wonder what the point is in writing them. Are they hoping someone with more information will write in, or are they just really hurting for material? Are they too busy to investigate matters? What’s the deal?

Snopes also did a lot of fact-checking about the political candidates during the election, something that seemed beyond the scope of a debunking site.

What it boils down to is, I’m not sure what kind of site Snopes is anymore.
