How many forum members does it takes to change a light

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

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

Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light

Seven more to point out spelling/grammar errors in
posts about changing light bulbs.

Five to flame the spell checkers.

Three to correct spelling/grammar flames.

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

Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry
and give the correct spelling.

Nineteen to post that this group is not about light
bulbs and to please take this discussion to a
lightbulb (or light bulb) forum.

Eleven to defend the posting to the group saying that
we all use light bulbs and there fore the posts are
relevant to this group.

Thirty six 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

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

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

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

Thirteen 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

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

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

Three to tell a funny story about their show dog and a
light bulb.


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