Everyone has a spam catcher account, it’s the account that you sign up for stuff with (this particular one has my subscription to straight dope, and misc comics, and self improvement newsletters, etc)
But anyway, I entered all my information in making me an 18+ (I’m not exactly sure how old I was) New York resident Zip code:12345. Somehow some where someone figured out that I was an young Canadian Citizen, and now I have an email in the account telling me about the election.
I know I sign up for a lot of stuff from that account, but I never remember signing up for an elections canada newsletter. How did Hotmail figure out that I was canadian? And moreso how did the govt find out that Some_Address@hotmail.com belonged to a canadian, a young one at that? Is Big Brother watching me, how did they figure out that I’m canadian?
