    Yep got it as well.

    Considering that's the same email address that was leaked during the whole Gawker fiasco last year and nothing happened because of that, I'm not too worried. Spammers already seemed to have my name anyway.

    Still I'm not really looking forward to more spam. :(

    Got mine as well. I'm not sure to be impressed that some company bothered to inform me of a breach or concerned that yet another company has failed to protect personal data.

    I wonder who the 'service provider' was? Perhaps a lot of other companies may also be compromised.

    Yep, I got it too, but I do wonder how I'd be able to tell the difference between the spam I was getting before and the new spam :).

    Maybe we will be able to decide which spam to receive, when we want to receive it, and create season passes for the ones we really enjoy.

    Got one as well. Also got an email from Brookstone yesterday. Coincidence I think not. Now I wonder who this email service provider is as well. I also wonder if there is any sort of compensation for lack of security on these corporations.
