Dharma kinda wants us, but doesn't know it yet

So it appears there's a new Dharma Wants You email, except no-one has the email yet and the URL version discovered is dated 08/08 (which is Friday...). Check out the newsletter here. So either the URL is inaccurate, or this shouldn't be a clue yet and might get pulled now that fans have found it. I hope its just the former, as you'd think by now TPTB would realize that they can't put something on the net without a fan finding it in 10 seconds flat - does nobody recall Rachel Blake's first video on! Or the days of the dreaded glyphs!

I'll post the email's contents below. Note, possibly classed as a spoiler, but it is an ARG based on the Internet, so the words contradiction in terms springs to mind. Also there are two things within the newsletter source code, but are exactly the same as the other newsletter with "banks claw" and the bluetooth video. Looking forward to Friday!


As many of you may be aware there have been a number of security breaches in recent days related to the nature of the Dharma Initiative's latest research.

This included the unauthorized release of sensitive video documentation during a sponsored panel discussion with the makers of the TV show "LOST" at Comic-Con 2008 in San Diego. Consequently, the person responsible for this breach, a promising recruit by the name of Dan Bronson, has been expelled from the volunteer program and had his Dharma membership permanently revoked. Furthermore, the Dharma Initiative has withdrawn their sponsorship from "LOST".

The Dharma Initiative must stress that the video material leaked at Comic-Con 2008 was viewed entirely out of context. Furthermore, the way in which the material was presented utterly distorted its significance and credibility as scientific data.

The Dharma Initiative is extremely disappointed with this outcome and has ordered a security audit of all departments. As part of this audit the DharmaWantsYou recruiting website will undergo a security upgrade in the next few days.

Upon completion of this upgrade a date will be announced for the official commencement of Volunteer Assessments.

All recruits are reminded that the unauthorized release of confidential information pertaining to the details of your activities within the Dharma Initiative will result in instant dismissal from the volunteer program.
