Could Topix have committed wiretapping when it used the contents of posts to choose ads to display to its own customers?

When I get emails they appear on Topix adds almost immediately,
who else reads my emails?

I received a confirmation from Holiday Inn 'Airport' and when I returned to Topix (the same) was being advertised - so who got taped, me or Holiday Inn?

Inquires on GOOGLE end up here all the time, so my freedom of speech works 'two' ways, RIGHT?
I give it freely and others use it freely!

Looked on a website at a new truck my F-I-L was purchasing from a local car dealership and the next two days on the right top corner of my screen there was an ad for that dealership with the picture of the truck my F-I-L bought now that you mention it... I never really gave it a second thought until just now.

If they know I looked at that particular website then presumably they know what other sites I & the big guy view and that makes me feel a bit invaded.
