( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Do you have effective bulk e-mailing services to offer? We are still having problems just getting the first batch of 700-odd e-mails actually successfully sent due to anti-spam measures that are nearly ubiquitous.

Trying to figure out how to send 58,000 e-mails to people who, for the most part, haven't visited here in years is not my highest priority. There is plenty of other work to do in response to this incident, and most of it isn't happening as fast as I would like.

If you feel strongly that this needs to be done, than please demonstrate your sincerity by composing a proposed e-mail body and finding an effective bulk e-mail delivery method that the vast majority of PerlMonks users would not mind having their e-mail address provided to. If you or somebody else provides those two items, then I will try to find a resource to select and extract the pertinent e-mail addresses.

I personally believe that this incident is already very widely publicized and the number of people who would be reached by a mass e-mailing who are not already aware of the problem and who also left interesting personal information here that is still pertinent, would be vanishingly small. Never the less, I would like to e-mail everybody just in case there are some people in that category. So I would appreciate the help. But I will be spending the time that I already don't have on tasks related to this incident that I consider more important.

Thank you.
