Perhaps I'm missing something. My question is, why use it? Why would
you want to know other scores while the contest is still on? The only
score that's important is the one at the end, and then only when
validated by the contest sponsor. 

Were I a sneaky type, which I am not, I would be tempted to post an
inflated score in hopes of discouraging other guys and making them
give up. Or just the opposite: post a low score and get them
overconfident and lose motivation. Later, I would admit to a "mistake"
in scoring.

I dunno... even if accurate, it just doesn't seem worth doing.
