I don't see why this (Single Operator using a real-time scoreboard) even merits 

How could anyone assert that a "single operator" entrant who looks at a 
real-time contest scoreboard via the internet, packet, etc. is NOT "assisted?"

In my opinion, the only contest categories with any legitimacy are Single 
Operator (strictly defined and enforced) and Unlimited. All the other 
categories are mere constructs.

Time to read "Alice in Wonderland" again.
