Another conundrum.

Q: 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, just to add "Me too"

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

1 to create a new thread before searching to see if it was ever on the site
before

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"

5 to point out this was actually a repost all along, and link the original
thread

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

1 to be named ClayJ and proclaim "I invented the light bulb"

Lightbulb

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! brilliant.

What about a few proclaiming their gas lamps produce more powerful light than the more recently released lightbulb?!

oh and then dont forget the ones that will then think about trading their lightbulbs for gas lamps

Good stuff, but discussed to death over and over.

And actually, ClayJ would say that he owns all light bulbs and light bulb companies.

He would also allude to owning multiple light bulbs across multiple continents (Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Africa) and to hosting "light bulb demo days" at his private tracks

All the while griping about why he can't post his "pics" because of his probationary status...
