    I have gotten several emails over time, it just seems weird. Anyone else get these? Below is copy and paste from a few of the emails I have gotten. With unsolicited emails like this is just triggers my scam alert flag, but then what could it hurt just signing their web logs. Appears to happen after getting a new award on qrz.com and the latest came after I was verified.
