I unsubscribed from the unwanted ones so i don't see them there anymore. Just lots of stuff I subscribed too.

I've noticed a few shows I never bookmarked were in my list of bookmarks the last few weeks as well. Mrs Browns Boys was one of them (though, that one I actually gave a try, so it's still in my bookmarks now). I doubt it has anything to do with hacking. It's probably a matter of changes made to the STF database, the index number may have changed for a few shows or something.... I assume some show I had bookmarked got swapped with one I never loaded before. Seems quite reasonable considering it's the same show Eccentric-eric had added to his list. There was some show about trucks in snow a while back, and yeah, some really young children's show recently...was probably that Adventure Time one mentioned in the first post. My biggest concern is what was most likely swapped out of my bookmark list...it's easy enough to remove the unwanted additions. But it's only been like 5-10 shows grand total, so not a huge loss.

I too have received emails about topics I never subscribed. Like a half a dozen.

I thought someone had my password, but I changed it and the situation is the same, received another email about a topic I never subscribed.

Same situation here... getting subscribed to random threads of series and receiving the notification every time a new post is made.

Last ones were from iCarly and Gold Rush. Never even open this series thread.
