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

1 to change the light bulb and 1 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

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

53 to flame the spell checkers

41 to correct spelling/grammar flames

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"

... another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive

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

156 to email the participant's ISPs complaining that they are in violation of
their "acceptable use policy"

109 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this
discussion to a lightbulb forum

203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, off-topic forum, and
lightbulb forum about changing light bulbs be stopped

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

306 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

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

14 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

33 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers
and signatures, and add "Me too"

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

19 to quote the "Me too's" to say "Me three"

4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ

44 to ask what is a "FAQ"

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

143 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about
light bulbs"

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

Good one to be sure Ernie! Cool

For all the cracks about the catering section there is some truth to that.

But if you expect that a bunch of "Type A" personalities will not have strong opinions on what they do and how they do it then yes it's probably not the section for you. Wink
