One of the people who is still quite active in the IETF was present 
the day I started a new job a few decades ago.  Here's a relevant 

Me (staring at an empty desk): How do I get a phone?
Him:  Send an email to IT.
Me: How do I get a computer?
Him: Call IT.
About 5 seconds of silence
Me: How do I get a phone?
Him: Send an em...oh, never mind.

As far as NOAA - I looked for a while for information about 
contacting the admins over this.  I could not find any information 
that was useful in contacting the admins about this.  The dotgov.gov. 
page only has howto's and FAQ's geared toward (US) government 
agencies and other registrants in GOV, helping them set up DNSSEC. 
There wasn't any way to drop a message, a number to call, etc.

This is not a one-time event in my experience with the US Gov't.  The 
Gov't sites seem to be built without recognition that there's a big 
world out there and sometimes it can be useful.  I say this having 
once spent 10 years on the inside and then transitioning out.

If there's a message I'd yell into any secured environment - when you 
are putting up your security barriers, make sure you can still hear 
from the outside.  Poor Scott shouldn't have to be the DNSSEC

The World Cup would be more fun if they didn't interrupt it with soccer games.
