To be fair, others who played in that event (who don't read the forum) may send in e-mails pointing out the same thing. They likely already have. While I can understand that updates of the entire database would be time-consuming, maybe the grading team could consider maintaining an online list of "corrections received that will appear in the next update"? That may avoid some duplicate answering of e-mails that point out the same errors.
