Spam, spam, info, spam

Bad news for people who are General Contacts for entities in EPC.  USAC has released a new Entity Download Tool that will let anyone (without needing EPC access) download their name and email address.  Account Administrator's names are also available, but not, apparently, their email addresses.

Browsing the NJ entities, most entities do not have an email address listed (most don't have a General Contact name, in which case sometimes the Account Administrator's email is sometimes listed).  I haven't figured out a pattern on which General Contacts get their email address exposed.  Still, there are thousands of school and library employees should brace for an increase in spam.
