The same is occurring for LUV in February. Whilst I don't share the LUV 
President's belief that "..we've won, man, it's game over", I do think 
that it's interesting that they appear to have decided to hit two LUG's 
with rep's willing to receive both pointy and (hopefully not very many) 
pointless question within a short period of time.

One of the many LUV ctte reps that are on the LA list can no doubt 
provide more information on how, what, when and where, but I agree with 
the rest of Sridhar's post, keep the  questions intelligent, insightful 
and to the point, and try not to stray too far into explaining how you 
once had to reinstall cause "format c:\" was allowed to work, and why 
did they allow such a stupid thing in, it could have been fixed with a 
single change to line 4786 of the file....
