Thank you for another example of "ham" logic :-)
Let me try another example, maybe it will help.
You are doing driver's test. You answered one question wrong. Examiner will 
take out another 3 good answers out "to teach you a lesson". Right?!  Etc. 
Reasoning about possible other errors that log checking cannot detect to make 
the 3 QSO penalty right makes as much sense as above example.
They used to, and I believe they still do, "punish" guessing on the SAT test. 
 Leave it blank, no penalty, guess wrong and you are penalized.  The catch is 
to know when to intelligently guess and when not to...another "skill" which 
successful contesters develop and use....a skill which mediocre ops have to 
learn to be top shelf ops.
