For instance, if you are going to send someone a list of 50 people and expect them to do something with it, freeform word content is not helpful:
John Stevens, (resides at 123 Green St, City, ST zip) - Kiddie diddler with trial date at the Kockatoucha County courthouse.
Ted Jones, 432 Red Drive #3, City, ST zip. Midget rapist. Has a hearing at the Littleton courthouse.
Wouldn't it be so much nicer to have a nice table with columns for
First Name, Last Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Accused of, Date, Location, etc.
Then I could filter the list and look at only kiddie diddlers from florida or convert it to other formats for analysis without having to bill you a few thousand dollars to have someone to copy+paste all of that crap into excel and then have someone else check to make sure they copied it right.
