The rule has nothing to do with when the disc comes to rest. It's all about demonstrating balance before advancing. I've played with competitors who are convinced by this "disc comes to rest" business that they can wave their arms to keep from tipping over until the disc comes to rest and then finish falling. But that's not the case at all. And by the same token, if you get a rollaway putt that doesn't come to rest for 30 seconds, you don't have to wait 30 seconds to advance.

If you're only playing casual, who cares? Do what you want.

I can never understand why players who don't play tournaments and have no desire to play tournaments feel the need to interject their opinions about (or usually against) rules that they are under no obligation to follow whatsoever.

I had a guy swear at league that the putting circle is 30' so he only needs to be 10 paces away so he can jumpputt. So I had to inform him that:

Misconception #A: The "circle" is 30' from the basket. It's actually 10 meters (~32.8').

Misconception #B: A normal person's pace is 3'. It's actually 30" average.

Misconception #A+B= Misconception C: 10 paces out measures the circle. It's actually 13 paces for most people (10 meters = 393.7"/30"= 13.1 paces)
