I guess I still don't see the point.  How is having to have your log submitted within 10 minutes after the contest ends any more appropriate for rookie contesters than any other contester?  How is it really appropriate at all?  After all, I do have a life outside of ham radio and sometimes things get crazy enough around here that I can't just drop everything and submit a log within the magical 10 minute window.
