Classic pyramid scheme. Main difference is that it doesn't ask the sucker
to send money.

Assuming every recipient obediently follows orders it would take ten to
the tenth power unique addresses by the time it got down to you.
10,000,000,000 is still higher than the world's population, I believe.

The Web would be doing nothing but processing autoresponse emails long
before it got that far.
