I think it is more in the spirit of the Mixer to fix the error and play it out. Now you and any spectators get to see you play out the game.

Here is the updated table of bot performance in the Postal Mixer, calculated by the game-room ratings of the opponents.
 
Bot .    Year Record Postal Performance
---      ---- ------ ------------------
Bomb     2005   4-6   1716
Zombie   2007   1-14  1409
Sharp    2008   1-8   1568
OpFor    2008   8-9   2060
OpFor    2009   3-7   1798
OpFor    2010   6-8   1848
Clueless 2010   9-7   2072
Briareus 2011  12-6   2167
Hippo    2012   4-4   1798
Briareus 2012  10-4   2221
Trash    2013   3-15  1431
Hippo    2013   7-11  1735
Briareus 2013  13-5   2186
Maximus  2014   2-18  1315

 
Note that even with two wins, Maximus clocks in below Zombie with one win, because Maximus faced more low-rated opposition than Zombie in its day.

Both of Maximus' wins were by time, one where it was losing badly, the other too early to be clear, so this isn't quite fair.

It's a bit silly, to be sure, but at least the calculation is consistent.  Note that last year all three wins of bot_trash were on time as well.  One just has to realize that the postal rating of bot depends on the reliability of its developer.  The same goes for human postal ratings; chessandgo's timeout to mistre this year affects their respective WHRP ratings just the same as if the game had been decided over the board.

I notice that I am the only player who has not yet completed a game in the tournament, and that 10 of 26 players have already completed all of their games.  My count may be unreliable, though, because, I'm relying on http://arimaa.com/arimaa/tourn/postal/2014/showGames.cgi , which has been messed up by multiple zombied games.
