This is mildly unusual.

The otherday, I recieved an email in my inbox telling me to click the link to authorize the account creation on tomshardware.com

I deleted the email. because I had no created an account here.

That was last week, sometime. Tonight, I get an email from tomshardware asking if I recieved a good reply and to rank the best response to my post.

My post? I don't have an account, and I have a post? So I came here, reset the password and what do I know, I get an automated password reset sent to my email.

Can someone inform me here? Why would anyone use my personal email account address to create a forum thread complaining about google ads?

Perhaps it was a lucky guess? Seems kind of strange, but perhaps they just "made up" an email address using their preferred username. At least your second post makes more sense than your first :)
