**** I had an LG thrill and there was a rom that had to be installed twice. If not there was a possibility of the status bar not showing up. It was a known issue go look it up.
There is always a small possibility of some tiny bits of code to not get wiped. Doing it 3x just ensures Tue job is totally done and only takes a few seconds to perform. Not doing so is just careless.

thank you for showing how little you know about android in one, painful to read, paragraph
i have no desire to look up roms for crappy lg phones to see some instance where multiple data wipes magically fixed some issue
unless the recovery is completely broken, there is no reason that wiping data/factory reset, wiping cache, or wiping davlik cache one time isn't sufficient
when you wipe data/factory reset it also wipes cache and davlik cache, so doing anything beyond wiping data is pointless
multiple wipes to get something clean applies to sanitary issues, not android
while i dont necessarily expect the average end user to understand all of this, i would think that (regardless of the implicit "no one is responsible but you for what you flash to your device") someone who is modifying stock software and releasing it for others to use would be giving as accurate information as possible
