I got this in my personal email today. I don't suspect I'm the only one.

How is it that someone can gain access to the member listing? Did someone go through the list manually by just starting at the beginning of the membership list? Or is there a possiblility that the membership list was sold?

But I can say that no one associated with this site released the list to anyone.
