How about rather than killing the thread we actually make it more

What about creating email viruses (i.e. messages or memes that get
forwarded) which are actually valuable rather than timewasting or
destructive. These entities could be regarded as symbiotic as opposed to
parasitic (the hosts being the senders and recipients of the mails).

Can these entities not be used as powerful marketing tools (given the
incredible reach that they have and their speed of replication)?

My feeling is that they can, and they would spread quickly in focused
communities with a common interest if they conferred some benefit.
