    How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?

    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.
