    Very True!

    Just thought you guys might get a laugh out of this.

    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
    7 people to post. can this be made a sticky?
    46 reporting it as spam because the "lightbulb" company does not sponsor their forum
    1 new forum member to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again

    Haha it isn't even 'light bulb' but 'heater' because 95% of the energy in an incandescent bulb is heat!!!
