Well, the flood of questions is dying down a little, I figure I'd post this list of questions from Heresy-Online that either weren't answered clearly or took too much rules-wrangling to answer. The idea is everyone who reads this copy and pastes it into an e-mail to GW at [email protected]
. So that GW will answer these questions when they do their Rulebook FAQ.
EDIT: To be completely clear, don't discuss the topics you see listed below, just e-mail them to GW. Even if you think there's an obvious answer, still send it, because I checked; each thread was really long, or wasn't answered satisfactorily, or the question was just one many people will have and has an answer which isn't so obvious. If you want to debate a topic you see here, click the link next to it and discuss on the thread dedicated to its discussion. I'll be editing the list below to account for new topics.

Three Part Question:
i) When playing a mission with the Night Fighting rule, and you are using Imotekh, who's Lord of the Strom rule always makes it Night Fighting in the first turn, do you roll for the Mission's Night Figthing anyways?
ii) If yes, and the normal Night Fighting roll fails, do you roll to see if night fighting comes into effect on turn 5?
iii) If yes again, would this Night Fighting cause Lightining Bolts?
If Mind in the Machine affects a Zooming Flyer with more than four weapons (and missiles) how many can you fire? The rule says may fire as if it didn't move in the previous turn. A Tesla Destructor arcs to a unit that cannot be seen by the unit that fired, but can be seen by the unit targeted. Can any wounds actually be caused? Does a C'tan's Lord of Fire work against Psyker using a power from the Pyromancy Discipline? Do Canoptek Spyders gain an extra attack if they have a Fabrication Array? Thread
If a Flying Monstrous Creature that was Swooping fails a Grounding Test and becomes Grounded, does it lose Swooping? Thread

EDIT ON JULY 12 2012

In White Dwarf 390, Carl Dafforn talks about how his Dreadnoughts have the Hammer of Wrath rule. But there is nothing in the Rulebook or FAQ's about this. What gives?
EDIT ON JULY 15 2012
Is the Mawloc's Terror From the Deep resolved like a shooting attack, or melee attack? Can it hit Zooming Flyers? Thread
