That's how Ev Tupis explained it to me, since he went through battles with the contesters before with his Propnet and now HamIM interests.  The ARRL considers getting information about where others are located via a network to be cheating (for single op stations)..  Apparently for multi-ops stations, you acn even use the internet...
