Frequency is not Stritmatter's friend. Every table of favourite sections, books, chapters and verses indicates the lack of an overlap of interests between the annotators and the playwright. The idea that the more frequently a verse is referenced, the more likely is it to be marked, dies a painful death in this table.

Shakespeare's Top 100 verses feature in 568 references in the plays. Over half of Stritmatter's Direct Diagnostics are present, yet even stretched by his additions then sorted by the inflated total, only 14 references are marked in the Top 100. This 14% figure is the closest we can get to the metric that Richard Waugaman brandishes as 88%.

All of the references in this table should make the cut as Shakespeare Diagnostics, yet only 34 do, suggesting any calculations in which they feature might be a little off. Shakespeare's most popular reference, Genesis 3.19, suffers the indignity of being linked to the marks 'indirectly'.
