No Chris, your opinion is absolutely relevant. Apparently the world-wide 
education system has been successful in creating the "Everyone's a 
winner, here's your trophy for last place." mind set.

The CQ committee already has a provision for those who can't/won't make 
the 5-day deadline. What is so difficult with pressing a key to generate 
a Cabrillo file, attach it to an email, and send it to the contest 
sponsor. This can be done with 1 minute of effort right after you have 
decided you are done with the contest. I've sent logs in even before the 
contest period was over.

If a contester can't manage that 1 minute effort, they can email an 
extension request. Something like "I'm too lazy to get my log in on 
time". The only difference in the amount of effort is with the extension 
request, they didn't have to push the "create Cabrillo file" key and 
attach it.
