[CQ-Contest] Has the contest started?

We've all been discussing when the contest ends, and what's OK and 
what's not. Personally, I think logs should be sent in within 24 
hours, and that solved many of the "dilemmas." (I mentioned this is 
an earlier post, but never saw it hit the reflector.

Now for another question :


Is it OK to start CQing and giving out 599s before the contest to 
grab a good frequency for the contest's start?
Is it OK to set up your CT (or NA/TR) log before the contest? If you 
can't massage a log post-contest, why can you prepare it pre-contest?

I am being facetious here, but maybe there's something to it?
