I too have received several emails from various excite.com addresses asking
the same question. Before that I received a couple of emails from
excite.com addresses directing me to "Find Out About Anyone Fast" websites.
All attempts to find out about the members or reply to the addresses have
perhaps this is a better questions for the incidents list though...

Subject: Strange e-mails from Excite.com
My Web site has received 3 e-mails in the last week, via a Web
Support form (believe it is a CGI form), from the Excite.com
domain. All three e-mails asked verbatim:
"What’s your corporate HQ street address?"
Has anyone else received similar messages in the past week?
I don't know if it is anything--beyond a simple address request--but
my company's supporters have not seen anything similar to these
requests in the last year.
I checked with Excite and I could not find the member names listed
in their directory.
Does anyone know of a possible exploit scenario? I was thinking
of a send-mail attack. Am I being paranoid?
Any thoughts, speculations would be greatly appreciated,
