Spam from Forrester Research

I received a curious email this morning:

It comes from Forrester Research (and does include an unsubscribe link). Here's the problem.

1. I've never signed up for email from Forrester

2. They made up the email address they are sending to. My actual email address is [email protected], but they decided to try [email protected] I received that mail because as the domain administrator I get sent all misdirected email. So this means that someone at Forrester decided to add me to a mailing list without knowing my email address.

That is simply wrong Forrester.
