Modifying one's log after the event has ended is unethical.

If, *during* the contest, you thought to yourself, "Gee, I bet I mistyped 0 
for O in that call" or made a note in the log to review all "J7O/0J"or 
something like that, then go fix the calls.  You caught it during the 
contest and while you probably should have used some down time to go back 
and check, it seems reasonable to me to do that editing.  I repeat - only 
because it was detected between 0000Z Saturday and 2359Z Sunday.

If you are only today going, "Hmmm, wonder what I entered for that call 
sign?" the simple answer is BZZZZZTT!  If you didn't get it right during the 
contest or at least made a note to "Change all X to Y" in the log...hey, 
pal, the contest is OVER.  Live and learn - get better - watch your 
fingers - there's another contest waiting right around the corner.

This is discussed at http://www.arrl.org/contests/hf-faq.html in section 2b. 
Or maybe not 2b.  That would be the question.
