The admins have stated in times past that the server does not slam the 
gate down, so to speak, at the deadline.  Instead, a human being tells 
the server to stop accepting submissions, at the deadline, or sometime 
after that.  In this case, the human being has not gotten around to it.

I suppose that it would be fair if everyone knew this, so that more 
people could jump on the wagon, but life in unfair.
