Question about DivaCup information packet

I looked through the memories before I started typing this so I hope it's not a repeat. If it is, someone just point me in the right direction for an answer and then feel free to delete this post. :)

I got a DivaCup for Christmas and since my cycle should be starting within the next few days, I've been reading the little pamphlet that comes with it and am about to try a dry run with it. I'm curious about something though. The pamphlet warns against inserting the cup too high and says that doing so could cause leaks, but doesn't give a reason why. Anyone have an answer as to why that might happen? I'm also a member of vaginapagina and I've seen several women mention that their cup more or less sits around their cervix, but they don't seem to have any problems with leaks. Anyone with some experience on the matter either for or against what the pamphlet says? Could this just be one of those "your mileage may vary" situations?
