So recently I've been getting a lot of spam to my dedicated EA and Bioware email accounts. Of the hydrocodon/xanax/v1agra variety.

It has me wondering if there's been a new breach of the EA servers and if a new round of Live ID hacking is underway.

Neither.
They sell your info to marketing companies to make money like everyone else does.
Read the ToS. It's all in there.

I don't always make absolute statements;

But when I do, I say EA (specifically EA SPORTS) are the biggest bunch of *%$(%*$$(*#$(#*%(#%*# on the planet. Absolute worst. Bar none. South Park took it easy on them, imo. They deserved faaaaaarrrrr worse.

It seems like I would've been getting these all along. Maybe my spam filter was working better and now the dirt bags have better email titles.
