All we are trying to do is neutralise false accusations that were made about us by a malicious spammer which are appearing in search engines. I have personally contacted John the list administrator and have his full permission to do this.
We have a signed letter from the BBC litigation department confirming that the accusations are completely untrue.
I really hope all members understand, and offer my sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this is causing but it's our only option.
Limits are in the mind, not on the web.

Yeah, we kinda guessed...

No sh*t superman?
You'd be stupid enough to address something so potentially important (you think) to unintended recipients?
Ohhh, but wait -- you sent it to a large, subscriber-list-withheld, public mailing list, so you clearly can have NO IDEA who the actual recipients will be....
> ... The content is confidential and
> privileged. ...
Hmmmm -- now doesn't that raise some serious problems for you?
You deliberately sent your message to a mailing list that you know you cannot know all the recipients of, _yet_ your message contains "confidential and privileged" information?
You and/or your legal advisers are clearly stark raving bonkers.
Or maybe that's the point? You're trying to establish insanity as a defence for whatever you may be, or have been, charged with/accused of?
> ... If you are not the intended recipient ...
In one sense, of course I am (one of the) intended recipient(s) as I subscribe to the mailing list you addressed the message to.
And, if you didn't intend to address your message to this list but did so anyway (out of incompetence, say?) how am _I_ supposed to be able to tell that I am NOT an intended recipient? Am I, along with every other list member address owner/user supposed to have intimate knowledge of _your_ intentions? Pray tell us how...

Darn -- I've got copies on my machine, there are partial copies of trace headers all over the Internet, there are multitudinous archives of the mailing list you chose to address this message to, there will still be many copies "in process" waiting for mail relays, servers, content scanners, etc, etc to "catch up" and so on.
This request is thus nonsensical...
> ... If you have received this electronic message in

As already described, how would I possibly know? (Yes, there are some circumstances where that could be more or less certain, but this clearly is NOT such a case.)

It may or may not be in error, but regardless of what you now say, I'll NOT delete it even if you do claim you sent it in error. What will you do about that? This pompous piece of less-than-pseudo-legalistic BS neither intimidates me nor impresses me -- it's meaningless piffle created by a moron with no understanding of WTF s/he was doing.

It's a pity you don't also scan all Email sent from Norfolk Design for meaninglessly bombastic, pseudo-quasi-legalistic nonsense, but never fear -- some of us apply our own scanners for such content...
