If you're talking about the "skoolie newsletter" it seems to link back to skoolie.net after registering your click (normal email marketing stuff) and is probably a legit new thing from the forum. There is an unsubscribe link in the message itself and it is being delivered by a email marketing company that is generally considered to be above board.
Take what you will from that but it pretty clearly wasn't a hack. Maybe the poo thing is real, that's harder to tell.
