Tree, I think you're being far too lenient.  Silly me, I have always 
expected that if I don't make the deadline I'd better have a darned good 
reason why not, before asking for an exception.  Why shouldn't the major 
contest sponsors make it clear they are going to enforce their deadlines, 
and then do so?  Are the contest sponsors afraid of being sued?  How could 
they be, when the due dates are published.

I think that would be even better than sunshine for disinfecting this 
particular septic tank.
