I suppose I shouldn't assume everyone would understand what I would blurb 
out. If you have hung out in the internet long enough, you may (or may 
not) come across few posts about "mail-bombing" someone -- the exact 
meaning is to flood his/her e-mail box with (most of the time, useless) 
e-mails that the he/she would get over-quota (depending on the rules of 
the sys adm at that site, he/she may even get temporary off the line or 
account). And that, my friend, is what I meant -- to flood Audi U.S. with 
your mails of request.
