learning not to underestimate monster breath

Not underestimating monster breath is one thing I learned in my best game ever which just ended. I was thinking logically: fire does damage, so does acid, cold, lightning, etc. But confusion? it just confuses, right? Things like confusion, light and dark wouldn't do much damage. I shouldn't expect the game to be that logical..

After some research in the monster blow spoiler, I found I was quite wrong.
I didn't have confusion resistance, but according to my calculations and what it says in the monster blow spoiler, confusion breath can do a maximum of 286 damage EVEN WITH RESISTANCE. Which seems rediculous, but looking at this spoiler gives me a new fear for high HP monsters which breathe stuff.

I made a couple tables: The first one is a shortened form of the breathing part of the monster spoiler. The second table is max damage with resistance. Another table is common breathers and their breath damage at full HPS.
So here's my monster breath spoiler (made mainly for myself, but others will likely find it useful):

Do you think I should upload this to the spoiler site?
