RE: why o why did NASA do this.

I meant this outdated NASA e-mail list. I undestand that FD could be
used for this purpose.

The fact that NASA just hands you this information (outdated or not) is
pretty sad. As I stated before it is free information leakage at best
and because it is outdated it should be removed from public view. This
could be used for social attacks and e-mail attacks. I don't think
SPAMmers care about some 6 year old list but hackers would. Any
information that they can get free of charge is just that much better.

You know me better than that GuidoZ .....lol

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...
