To add maybe a final note to this thread :

 From further analysis, it seems that in order to send these undoubtedly spam emails, 
Gurkan seems to have used the services of an organisation which, according to their own 
website at least (http://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/) is taking some steps to insure that

their lists of recipients would not be spread further.
Whether this was intentional or not, that is to his credit.

As an information professional, I feel however that I should add that this is far from 
being the general case, and that in my experience it happens frequently that such 
recipient lists are subsequently copied, re-distributed, re-sold or "leaked" to other 
related-or-not entities, even by organisations which very ponderously /pretend/ otherwise

on their public website (or in public hearings, for that matter).
