Suddenly I get numerous 'newsletter subscription' mails in my inbox, some declaring I subscribed and some asking me to confirm my subscription.

I must have really pissed off some spammer to get some personal attention like this. GOOD. A spammer getting all worked up isn't spamming.
Too bad none of the mails tell me which IP address I 'subscribed' from, although I have a vague idea I need to search in the area of Heerlen / Kerkrade in the Netherlands.

All the subscriptions without confirmations will be reported as spam naturally.
