If contest management take months to perform the log checking it is the 
sign this is an important, full part, of the competition and the form 
of the logs can perfectly be one of the rules.
I can bet that marginal or no log checking lead partecipation to fall.
I can bet that havin' a rule for electronic logs lead to a positive 
turn over were finally the entrants number is increased.

> Not everyone has access to a computer, during or after the contest.

Possibly true but fundamentally philosophical to amateur radio.
A symple and obsolete super cheap PC (ie. 286 or 386) can be bought (or 
got for nearly free) and works nicely. It cost much less than other 
devices you need and buy.
