OK, it's after midnight here and I should be fast asleep (Bob knows I'm slow when I'm awake) and I just noticed some questions being asked soon after related articles were the "Featured Article". Are there people seeing the titles of featured articles and then hurrying to Q&A to ask about the subject rather than actually reading the article? Are sock puppets trying to increase traffic?

I hope I'm wrong; that the questions were asked first and then the hamsters coughed up the articles, but it sure doesn't seem that way.
