Submission + - LazyTruth hunts down urban myths in your inbox (gizmag.com)

cylonlover writes: LazyTruth is an inbox widget that works by searching through your received messages, looking for specific phrases associated with some of the most common viral emails that make bogus claims. When it finds one, it composes an email rebuttal, which includes links to sources that refute the content of the offending message. Those sources include fact-checking and/or urban myth websites such as PolitiFact and FactCheck.org.
