Default How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

I've been posting this around a bit-- it's pretty neat. :lol:
Really off-topic, though!

How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

1 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 how the
light bulb could have been changed differently


7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

1 to move it to the Lighting section

2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section

7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing
light bulbs


5 to flame the spell checkers

3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"
... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the
proper term is "lamp"


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

19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and
to please take this discussion to a lightbulb 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 work
best for this technique and what brands are faulty


7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post
the corrected URL's


3 to post about links they found from the URL's 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"


5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they
cannot handle the light bulb controversy

4 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"

1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months
from now and start it all over again.

The term "lightbulb" is actually incorrect. It's "light bulb". The space makes all the difference.

Trust me. I was in the industry once.

I changed all the light bulbs in my house.

Alright, enough of this silliness, this board is for discussing frogs. If you really have to continue discussing this, please try http://www.bulbcollector.com. You'll find people there are more apt to such conversation, and you won't be bothering the rest of us with such an inane discussion.

Sir, I would like to reffer you to the numerous discussion in the Parts and Construction forum that pertain to light bulbs. This conversation is well within the scope of this forum.
