NEVER EVER EVER EVER

forward or sign *ANY* petition, chain letter, or any such thing that
does not have *A DATE AND AN EXPIRATION DATE*.

Companies and universities have lost many many thousands of dollars
on wasted resources dealing with these things, which circulatwe for
*YEARS* after the original issue is long dead.

If you want to get a cleaned up press release, go for it; without an
official press release, it's presumed revenge spam.  (Come, now, how
many 400+ line headers and messages are the poor sods gonna get?)

(Lest you think this is silly, consider the hundreds of children who
haven't gotten wishes because of the full-time staff expenses the
Make A Wish Foundation incurs on the Craig Shergold thing.)
