    How Many Does It Take...

    How many discussion group posters does it take to change a lightbulb?

    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

    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

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

    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

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