Why/How did Facebook spam me?

So... FacebookTM sent an email to my email address from someone who I don't know but lives in my general geographical area requesting my friendship. Problem: this email address is definitely not associated with a FacebookTM account. However, there are probably cookies from FB on this computer. Also, this potential "friend" appears to run some sort of digital media consultancy (blech). Question: how did Facebook scrape this email address exactly and why did I get this email? Did this guy pay Facebook to send a friend request to an email address they scraped or is it something more automatic? [more inside]

you're not worth an additional 62%, san jose state

LibrarianFilter: Is this even legal? My school has just announced they will be increasing student fees by over 60% for the next semester. I've sent an email to the director, but what can I, or other students, reasonably do to combat this? Do I have to drop out of school because I can't afford an additional $5,000? Full text of the announcement is below. [more inside]
