I think you have misinterpreted my response. We are talking about the unassisted category. While it is up the the contest directors and managers to make a ruling, I would imagine that for the assisted category, the real-time scoreboard would be allowed.

Do consider your response in the context of the previous widely popular thread 
on attracting youth to contesting. The realtime scoreboard makes contesting a 
contest for many ops that do not stand a chance to get top ranking. They pick a 
competitor and try to outscore them based on the scoreboard. It is the 
scoreboard that makes contesting fun for those who use it.

Virtually all other sports evolve and develop new techniques and technologies. 
Why is contesting any different and tries to promote mediocracy?

Further, if organizers really want to impose rules that slow innovation, they 
should develop a set of guiding principles and objectives. Right now many of 
the restrictions are arbitrary.

Let contesting innovate before it joins the dinosaurs.

My response to contest directors and managers is: change the rules for next 
year so that it is not allowed in the future.
