Computer Virii as Social Reintroduction

Viruses like Melissa, Iluvyou and so on work by trawling people’s inbox and contact list for email addresses and sending them on. So, if they haven’t switched email addresses, people suddenly hear from those they lost contact with because they couldn’t bothered to write before because those people’s emails are still in their email archive somewhere. What a bizarre way to meet again. I wonder if anyone has hooked up by viral remailing?
