How so?

The ARRL clearly states (in the HF Contest FAQ sheet) that you are allowed
to correct obvious typos (immediately after the end of the contest) and
syntactic errors relating to the acceptance robot.
Yet, in apparent self-contradiction, that same ARRL document says, "There are wide ranging opinions about the acceptability of editing your log after the contest. The most conservative and always acceptable answer is that no editing of any sort is permissible."

I guess I'm one of those with a conservative opinion.

Rhetorically, is there a double standard?  Are electronic submitters required to have greater accuracy than paper submitters?  What happens if you were to submit a paper log with J7circleJ?  Who determines if that is an "oh" or a "zero" when it comes to adjudication?
