Perhaps I'm odd, but if I have only a small amount to participate in a 
contest, the absolute last thing I would want to do is click around 
listening to one agonizing packet pileup after another....  

That being said, I know for a fact that there are quite a few 
local "casual" contesters in my area who have absolutely no idea that 
looking at DX spots puts you into the "assisted" category.  Is this 
cheating?  I don't know, and don't really care.  They're having their 
version of "fun", and usually they work me if I'm spotted so it all 
works out fine.
