I just recieved a message saying that my solution in the last div.3 contest coincided with someone else's. I'm mistakenly accused of cheating in #719 (Div. 3)


Your solution 115267864 for the problem 1520C - Не соседняя матрица significantly coincides with solutions Chaturved/115261480, EasonCookie197/115267864, natasha_25/115272375. Such a coincidence is a clear rules violation. Note that unintentional leakage is also a violation. For example, do not use ideone.com with the default settings (public access to your code). If you have conclusive evidence that a coincidence has occurred due to the use of a common source published before the competition, write a comment to post about the round with all the details. More information can be found at http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/8790. Such violation of the rules may be the reason for blocking your account or other penalties. In case of repeated violations, your account may be blocked.

I swear that I didn't cheat in the contest, and all the codes in this contest are 100% written by me. I didn't use an online IDE. I don't know the other two users. The coincidence is caused by a trivial approach to the problem : just print all the odd numbers and then all the even numbers in order. I believe many other contestants used the exact same method too,with very similar codes. I hope I can get my ratings back. Can someone help me please...
