The majority of the list had nothing more than

alias $name $email

Only small parts had any more specific contact information. The emails

and you based that on absolutely nothing at all?:
[harry () stewie nasanames]$ for i in *; do echo $i; cat $i |grep note|wc -l; cat 
$i |grep alias|wc -l;done

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".

i have to admit... it's pretty old and useless, but i think this may be a nice 
place for spammers to try out some new adresses...
