how would this list help me spam?

Google your email address - then simply use a bot to gather ALL the
email addresses listed in the posts along with it. ;) The sad fact is
that the email addresses used to post to this list (and any others
like it) are freely there for the taking. Plus, it's quite obvious
they are active. (More obvious then, say, email addies fro 1996?) ;)

Exactly as I stated eariler...this is just information leakage...old as
it might be, it helps...the people on the list are just doing their
jobs...getting paid and giving information to a employee that knows
their name (and is higher in the company) seems harmless. Spam isn't the
issue with this information leakage, I can buy a CD with 6 million
e-mail address on it...how would this list help me spam?

Forget about the spammers, how about social engineers. This
is quite the gold mine for that.

Hi this is Joe Schmoe from building 69 I need to have my
password reset.

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...
