Has my wordpress account been hacked ?

    Hi, I have a wordpress account that I rarely ever used. I don’t even have a blog setup.

    Lately I got quite a few spam emails saying I signed up for comments on quite a few very strange blogs I have never heard of.

    When I check my subscribe.wordpress.com list page, they are set to “pending”. How on earth is this possible ?

    Is there a way somebody can subscribe me to a blog or to comments, or does this mean my wordpress username and password was hacked? please help.

    Here is an example I got via email. All email addresses are correct from wordpress, not forged or phishing, so how is this possible when I never followed these blogs, or it it somebody trying to suggest me to follow ?!?!
