Sender email:

This might be fake, but it can be also true and some Bitcointalk admin has looked for emails in the database.
I am posting this for calling the attention of admins and do some investigation about.

I have my email in my profile and have not received such emails yet.

The guy apparently is only sending to Bitcoin Bussines emails.

The original email (fist one) was sent to the mail I use in the contact page of a Bitcoin related website.

I have evidence that this list of addresses was scrapped from at least one DNS registrar.

Nah, the only active admin here is theymos, and I don't think he will leak the info here.

Yeah, I haven't received a email of this kind.
I doubt there is information leaked, I think it's just a troll move.
If it isn't, many people are going to be...furious.

Yeah, I'm a bit skeptical.  Even if you add /r/bitcoin and Bitcointalk together, you're still not going to come up with 300,000 accounts.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

checked my email registered with bitcointalk. nothing unsolicited in my inbox and nothing bitcoin related in my spam either.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
