While this was a legitimate "chain letter" study being done by the elementary school in question (I just got off the phone with them), it ended a couple a weeks ago. Unfortunately, there's no date in the message, so the fanout is continuing to grow. Here's the message: > > >> We are in Mrs. Scott's 3rd grade at Corey Elementary > > >> in Arlington, Texas. We are conducting an investigation. > > >> We would like for you to forward this message on to > > >> your entire address book. We are curious to see where > > >> this message travels. When you receive this message, > > >> please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and > > >> tell us your location. > > >> > > >> We are calling this investigation "The Great E-mail Race." > > >> We will then calculate how far this message has traveled > > >> in one week. > > >> > > >> Thanks for all of your help. > > >> > > >> Mrs. Scott's 3rd Grade Class > > > I just wanted to notify you guys to see if this can get nipped before it reaches critical mass. I even found it in a post in alt.connecticut dated 4/13... If you need to contact the school, they're at: Corey Elementary School Principal - Randall Gribbin 5200 Kelly Elliott Rd. Arlington, TX 76017 (817) 561-3900 The lady in their office said they finished the "study" a couple weeks ago... Let me know if you need any additional info.
