It's not clear to me you have to read any e-mail to figure out that
"help_us_free_tibet at" might be someone who's taking a
political position.  A search company may also, say, look for e-mail
addresses listed on the web sites that must be censored, and when
it's the same list being hacked, draw a conclusion.
