Massaging your entry to attempt to qualify for an easier category you don't is unethical.

Entering a TOUGHER category than you operated? Why is that even an issue?

If you start a contest in high power and your amp fails, but realize you're still having enough fun limping home barefoot, does that mean you must become a checklog rather than enter HP?

If you start a contest barefoot and then turn your amp on, if you submit as high-power, what ethical breach have you committed? Is having the audacity to claim credit for those more-difficult LP contacts an egregious insult to those guys who started burning lifespan off their 3CX1500s at the start?

If a handicapped boxer wins a match against an able-bodied opponent and the first boxer's handicap is only discovered afterward, is his victory null?

Really: M2 should not be able to beat MM. But if it happens, it's not the fault if the M2.
