Re: why o why did NASA do this.

The majority of the list had nothing more than

alias $name $email

Only small parts had any more specific contact information. The emails
provided seem to all have been @nasa.gov anyways. (did not actually
search for exceptions on this other than eyeballing it) Most likely
any mail sent to these addresses would be filtered, especially spam.
It probably is not much of a security risk as calling them to say "I
am Brantly Hanks, Deputy Chief Engineer" would get a response of "Ok,
give me your employeeID number to verify you".

At the same time handing all of this out to everyone and anyone is
just making that much more work for yourself.
