Maybe they should just sort it into separate rows per e-mail as opposed to per flash file. Here are some examples:
 
-
:[[spring cleaning|Spring cleaning]] would be split into either three or four rows.
 
-
::(2) "Do you have a secret crush ''with'' Marzipan", a missing comma, and Steve doesn't capitalize his own name or "Sterling". (3) No comma between "Bend" and "Oregon" (4) Repetitive use of the word crap (not as vulgar, just redundant). (5) "Suprised"
 
-
:[[50 emails]] would be split into three rows.
 
-
::(1) "Strong Bad" not capitalized, and an exclamation mark instead of a question mark. (2) "Stong Bad", and Matt doesn't capitalize his own name. (4) No commas.

These are my examples, which are currently only brief. The real version would be more organized. [[User:Wiremeup13579|Wiremeup13579]] 21:19, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

==Cleanup==
==Cleanup==
I see that this page needs a lot of cleanup.  I am wondering though, in which way should it be cleaned up?  I am thinking about capitalizing the table entries and including periods.  Also, I don't think it would hurt if the " " is taken out and things are actually repeated.  Some of the sentences need rewording, and in the Emails that spell Strong Bad/Strong Badia as one word, the note "But spells 'Strong Badia' correctly should be changed to just "Spells 'Strong Badia' correctly".
