MidwayUSA targeting TFL users or ME?

I never heard of a wheeler fat wrench until a thread (I didn't open to read it) was in the rifle section and this AM I get an email from them with a Wheeler fat wrench sale ad...
Coincidence or are they worming around? I do recieve email from them often and don't mind but don't like being hacked...

I've not gotten an e-mail on the fat wrench from them.

Have you purchased anything from Midway that is scope or sights related recently?

And no, Midway is not sending their evil minions to data mine your information from TFL. How the heck would they know that you saw the thread when you didn't even open it?

Mike, I never owned a tin hat but it just seemed quite a coincidence... I have never ordered anything from them. several years ago I went to their site to view catalog and did at that time sign up to get email offers...
I have no clue what IT technology is actually capable of either
The fat wrench thread was at the top when I went to rifles and then BLAMMO (comic book word for gun shot?) I get the email...
Thanks..

Phew...

OK, he's mollified...

Gather around me, my evil data mining minions, I have a task for you...

Go forth and get me the names of everyone who has thought about purchasing an SKS in the past three years...

FLY, MY PRETTIES! FLY!


Oh crap, did I say that out loud?

OK. I have the tin foil. How do I seal the edges of it after folding it over?

Um, you can't! If you leave so much as a square centimeter of the dull side showing, you will attract them mind reading rays!

I get stuff in the mail and via email from Midway as well. Probably because I've ordered via snail mail in the past. Whats a "wheeler fat wrench" by the way?
