[CQ-Contest] Logging question

My QSO confirmation priority is LoTW.
I do not really know what the 2by3 call sign's information source was.
I think his information source is his own log.

My view is all QSOs are equal.
QSO either was or was not.
In case log shows something else than what happened over the air, the log
is the final record of the contact .. if the record of the contact has an
error, the QSO has an error.
Then a confimation (QSL) can not be granted.

I am very happy nobody has suggested to think changing the contest log
based on an email discussion would be an approved procedure.
