[CQ-Contest] I just will not send in logs

Beats me why you think that contest sponsors should accept your late 
checklog.  If they were to actually try to use it for anything it would 
slow things down for everyone else.  The deadline is there to speed up 
the log checking process ... which is where all the logs go into a large 
database and get crunched by the computer.  Why should they (at least in 
theory) have to run it again just for your log?

Some strange logic here ...

From my personal experience, it appears that some contest robots do not accept late logs. I had that happen to me recently, I forget which contest, I deleted the return email that said my log was rejected for being late.
