SourceForge Query

I received an email this morning from SourceForge Resources. The start of the message is below.
Initially I thought this was a scam but a google search indicates the company is genuine. I've never heard of them before.
Can anyone help throw some light on this for me please?

Re: SourceForge Query

It looks genuine -  SourceForge and Slashdot Have Been Sold
They probably got your email address after you downloaded or used some piece of free open source software.
