Message to all users of a Net service

Question:

  How can I send a message to ALL USERS of an
internet service provider.?? (for example) aol.com  or yahoo.com??

  In DOS *.* or *.xxx did the trick.


  Thanks,

    Thom

Send me $59.95, and I'll tell you! I'll even throw in a free sample of Viagra! :-p

Actually you just have to go to their data center with 1) a group of elite commandos who can take out a room without hurting a single megahertz and 2) a geek.

Just ask them all for their e-mail addresses, then send to them.

You surely didn't mean "all at once", did you?

Probably the only way to do this would be to buy AOL or Yahoo! and then use your new influence to get someone in their IT department to send it on your behalf.

Maybe not the only way but likely the easiest :).

Dear Kevin,

I didn't think you were allowed near computers any more.

Here, try this in DOS:

net send thoms_computer /users "My IQ is a square root"

Thanks for making the world a better place.

Well, with an unlimited number of computers and an unlimited number of caffiene addicted monkeys typing away randomly on your unlimited computers for an unlimited amount of time...eventualy one of them will turn out a complete list of everyone's email in the world.

What are you doing? Don't just sit there, you have an unlimited number of bananas and traps to make.
