Default Embedded codes and spoof e-mails - why here?

I've always been wary of any forum which includes coded key-words within the text and sadly this forum is starting to worry me - too many code words hidden in text with popup adverts coming on to my PC when all I'm trying to do is drive and enjoy my Volvo. This morning I received an e-mail to my home e-mail address from a forum posting on front end bushings for a V70 which I'm supposed to have subscribed to - which I didn't - but the worrying thing for me is that the recipient is : [email protected]. No, I wasn't stupid enough to click on the link they gave me, but came here indirectly to see what exactly is going on?
Anyone else receive these, why would it come to me with this spurious address, has the forum been spammed?

I am getting these also. I thought I just had a setting wrong in my profile or something. But after I read your post, there doesn't seem to be any pattern to it. Like everything from my subscribed forum or subscriptions, or posts I have looked at. You may be on to something. Can any moderators please chime in?

I may have a setting wrong in my profile. Or maybe the moderators are just exempt. Just kidding guys.

Not a moderator, but I'm not getting any of these type emails. Your computer just doesn't like you.
