OK, so let's turn this thread into something a bit more positive. It  
is rather clear that receiving and using spots during a contest puts  
an SO into the assisted category. It is also now clear that asking  
others to spot you does the same (and is illegal anyway). It should  
also be clear that an SO benefitting from incidental spots still  
continues as an SO (non-assisted).

How about going the other way? Can an SO post spots to the spotting  
system without having to be in the assisted category? The station  
isn't getting any benefit from the spots, although his fellow club  
members probably are. It is relatively easy to turn off received  
spots in most logging programs while still allowing outgoing spots.  
So why would one do this? Specifically to help fellow club members  
who _are_ running SOA or multi.

So, illegal or not? And secondly, good or bad form?
