What you need then is also a "telephone tree" to do mass distributions
(randomly time-delayed) without having any one source go "over quota".

Could be phone meshed or use computer SMS I/O.

Wouldn't it be horrible if some otherwise benign, quiet worm infected
computers to implement this?  Zombies aren't just for porn & pills,
they can help spread the newz.
