U.S. Government Subscription Campaign Gone Wild?

I did not subscribe to the National Institute of Alcohol and Alcoholism, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Federal Voting Assistance Program, U.S. Department of Education, NIH, Military Health System, CDC, Social Security Administration, Healtcare.gov, TRICARE Communications, Social Security Administration, United States Department of Labor, NIH Clinical Center, Benefits.gov, Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Department of Transportation, Force Health Protection Readiness Policy & Programs, National Institute of Mental Health, or Disability.gov.

At first I thought that it was spam. Taking a closer look, all of the email was sent with the exact same time stamp (excluding Disability.gov) from service.govdelivery.com; IP 208.42.190.106. The U.S.federal government is a client of GovDelivery; was it some type of email subscription campaign gone wild?

Bad government email campaign

 

This particular business email address had minimal account activity until today. Either, service.govdelivery.com went bonkers or I’ve managed to piss someone off with a recent blog post.
