JCM email with unpublished article links

Yesterday I got a JCM email, it only had 3 articles in it, and when you click the links to the articles you get the following message:-
Joomla Community Magazine email

If you arrived on this page, by clicking on a link in the Joomla Community Magazine (JCM) email,
please note the following:



The email was sent out in error, and the articles in that email are still being finalized.

The January edition of the JCM will launch on the 5th of January 2018.



You do not have to log in to read any of the published articles of the JCM.

You will be able to access the new articles on Monday.
It is odd, and it has happened before so it seems to be a persistent bug. The articles in question are these:-

GET a Higher Google Ranking With PixTitle http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/JoomlaMa ... dium=email

Hello, I am JoRobo http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/JoomlaMa ... dium=email

CSS ile Arka Plan Resmi Kullanım http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/JoomlaMa ... dium=email

Also they do seem a bit spammy to me.

i think this is due to the JCM suddenly populating the rss feed to feedburner, hence the reworded error page.
i understand that jcm will transition to another email notification system instead of feedburner for that site.

Is this the same issue that sometimes causes random emails to be sent from the VEL?

But these are links to (presumably) unpublished articles.
