A Last Resort
After you have gone to great lengths trying to find somebody's email address — there's no way to ask ask for it personally, you've searched the Web, you've turned your house and emails upside down, you've even set up a Web site — without success, you can turn to a last resort: soc.net-people.
Soc.net-people is a Usenet newsgroup where you can ask for help locating somebody you believe to have an email address (or another form of online presence).
