Since like Sharon, I don't have a FB account, will someone post the signficant highlights of the "announcement" when and if it occurs?

I don't have a facebook account, either, but if you google "marriott rewards facebook", you can click on the first result and go to their facebook page. I don't believe we can comment or otherwise interact with the page, but they have the page set so that anyone can see it.
I agree that there need to be some limits associated with lounge access, but I doubt screwing the Gold Elites will solve the overcrowding problem.
Maybe this discussion could be moved to a separate thread... but I don't see why they don't just limit the number of guests Golds (and maybe Plats?) can bring into a lounge if they have not actually booked a concierge level room. I don't think it would be unreasonable to put a limit on 2 persons per room in such cases, with an upcharge for each additional guest.

And, in the few cases where an offer has lined up with my travel plans, my attempt to use the offer has always resulted in "No availability."
I've been a MR Plat for 3 years, and I've never heard of a BOGO. What is/was it?
