Should the results be right? Sure. But mistakes happen, and now someone has to go back and fix them. Which they may not know how to do. Simple for you, or someone else, perhaps. But maybe not for a promoter who doesn't know how, and has moved back to real life stuff...family, job, etc.
I have the same issues of real life, and perhaps the promoter can't be bothered to provide customer service, and I can't be bothered to participate in his races. If it was a huge hassle to fix, ok fine. If it's just a matter of resubmitting, then just do it.
