[CQ-Contest] Posting realtime scores?

Because it adds to the fun in real time.  No more operating in a vacuum not
knowing if you are even in the running.  Now you can compete in real time!
Get your friends or club members to do it and compete in real time amongst
yourselves or compare to the rest of the world.  Lots more fun than waiting
for weeks or months to get some idea how you did.  It can also be used as a
tool to entice non-contesters, it shows them in real time that something IS
really happening that weekend, a magazine article 9 months later does
nothing to get them on the air THIS WEEKEND!  And for multi-ops like mine
where I have operators coming and going all weekend it gives the 'off'
operators a chance to keep an eye on what is happening, so even if they
can't be here they can enjoy a bit of the action.
