Hi Barbara,

I couldn't find the content in the first blog posting. I'm curious now... What is viral marketing? What was the point of the hoax?

Well I must say it's a pretty clever way to get thousands and thousands of email addresses and they probably have one of those annoying tick boxes that would of been about sending them emails about other products and services!

glad I never sent an email!
