Just for the record, what kind of "proof" do you have? I'm personally
not concerned but if contacting everyone was such a hard task and the
only evidence of people accepting it are on "someone's" personal
computer then this is not really enough? Perhaps some for of official
announcement with email extracts etc. would go some of the way to
providing a public record? But you've maybe already done this elsewhere.

Just a thought.
