Don't ask me why i'm still awake..


- one to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has
been changed.

-14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and
discuss how the light bulb could have been changed differently.

-Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

-One to move the discussion to the Lighting list.

-Two to argue then move it to the Electricals list.

-Seven to point out spelling and grammar errors in posts about
changing light bulbs.

-Five to flame the spellcheckers.

-Three to correct the spelling and grammar flames.

-Two industry professionals to inform the group that the proper
term is 'lamp'.

-15 know-it-alls who claim that they were in the industry too and
that 'light bulb' is perfectly correct

-19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and people
should please take this discussion to a light bulb forum

-11 to defend the posting to this forum, saying that we all use
light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum

-36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior,
where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs works
best for this technique and what brands are faulty.

-Seven to post URLs where one can see examples of various light
bulbs.

-Four to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then to
post the corrected URLs.

-Three to post about links they found from those URLs that are
relevant to this group, which makes light bulbs relevant to this
group.

-13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety,
including all headers and signatures and add 'Me too'.

-Five to post to the group that they will no longer post because
they cannot handle the light-bulb controversy.

-Four to say, 'Didn't we go through this already, a short time
ago?'

-13 to say, 'Do a Google search on light bulbs before posting
questions about light bulbs.'

-One forum lurker to respond to the original post six months from
now and start it all over again.
