On CQMM DX Contest, we considered the fake logs possibility.
So, robot save every log sent in (correct or not) on database. If you send
in your log 2, 3 or 10 times, we have each version of your log on database.
Log process will use only latest one, but logs received from different
emails are highlighted for inspection.
