I've written NASA and other organizations re. the "Face"
and affiliated landforms before.  Here's a typical reply,
accompanied by my own reply back to NASA.

I'm not sure who this Woody Smith is, but he doesn't seem
to be very bright.  Somewhere along the way, NASA's stated
policy of open disclosure has been perverted into the usual
"People Interested in the Face on Mars are Kooks" treatment.

I'm very much aware of the April 5 image (just one image,
contrary to your message).  The "Face" is quite likely natural,
but I don't think the April image "clearly" shows anything
conclusive.  Indeed, it has revealed several new features that
deserve to be looked at.  Also, the photograph in question,
though of great interest, was taken under less than optimal
lighting and weather conditions.  The imaging opportunity on
August 26 should allow us to look straight down at the alleged
"Face" under vastly improved conditions.

I stand by the reasonable, inquisitive attitude expressed
in my initial letter.
