    So, I have been without t'matrix for about a week now, and the only net connection I get is in uni. So I check my gmail in uni, however I noticed a strange email, which had got past gmails spam filter. It said "thx for reg at " so I clicked on the url, and it w...n up to a forum? Or am I just being paranoid?

    Could be just a trick to make you visit the site, or maybe some typed their e-mail address in wrong.

    think its more that they just wanted more people looking at their elite haxor skillzzzzzzzzz

    to be honest, I kinda find it sad that 99.99% of these kids who say they are "ELITE" never got the "ELITE" status in Elite, ever.

    yes it is. It opens your email up to a wonderful world of spam when they realise that your email address is live

    The ongoing joke now is, that the russian hackers are sitting outside my flat hacking into my brainwaves.

    So I shouldn't really be worried then?

    I did - they now know that your email address is real, probably from the IP log in the link, which no doubt had an identifier unique to your email address.
