Spam (?) from dfc-org-qa

On Dec 18th I’ve received an email that looks like a regular “welcome, new user!” emails SF sends out.

Subject: Welcome to Developer Site

Body:

Hi ,

Welcome to Developer Site! To get started, go to
https://dfc-org-qa.force.com/forums/login?c=(redacted)

Thanks, dfc-org-qa

Username: eyescream@00df000000055l4mai.(redacted)

(Note the “Hi {nobody}” and something that looks like org id in the last line)

Does anybody have any idea what the hell? DFC = Dreamforce? Developer.force.com?

https://dfc-org-qa.my.salesforce.com/ seems to be a valid SF org with custom domain.
Quick googling yields https://twitter.com/cozimek and https://twitter.com/logontokartik, not too helpful.

I’ve used this mailbox to create my Dev. Edition and to authenticate on SF Answers or here… Still – looks bit fishy to be a legitimate new SF anything really.

Answer

It’s a legit email, but inadvertently sent out. The force.com Twitter account commented several times on Dec 17th (example: https://twitter.com/forcedotcom/statuses/413141325853114368) and appears to be about the developer boards update.
