You can also ask this question about the many other instances in Tanach where someone's name is written in various ways.

comment What is the correct emotion to feel upon hearing about enemy civilian casualties?
This question seems to involves multiple questions: Can/should you be happy at the death of an evil person who supported murdering Jews? Does it make a difference whether they were actively involved in the effort to murder Jews (and, if so, how actively involved would they have to have been)? Can/should you be happy if someone dies if, based on the limited demographic info you know about them, they were merely statistically likely to have supported murdering Jews?

comment Unethical landlord
@Brian Some volumes have a partial preview available on Google Books (e.g. here). However, Mishnah Berurah is a commentary on Orach Chayim. Your question probably pertains more to Choshen Mishpat.

comment Source for exemption of hekdesh by nizkei adam
@Matt Even according to the Maharshal's reading of that Rashi, I think the lishna basra is just saying that shein and regel would be liable, not אדם. A brief discussion of the Maharam's reading vs. the Maharshal's reading can be found on the KBY website.
