A computer scientist, Dean Pemberton, wants to do a study of how widespread the Gourmet Food Store viral e-mails travelled.
If you received either of the e-mails to and from Margaret from the Gourmet Food Store e-mails, can you please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. By the way Dean doesn’t work for me – I control the domain so the address will forward to him.
Dean will not publish any of the names or organisations it has been sent to, or forwarded onto. All results will be anonymised. Do froward the whole e-mail if possible including all the cascading names it has been though as that will help measure the depth and breadth of it.
Feel free to bring this request to the notice of people you know who received or sent on the e-mail.
