    A lesson in Posting
    How many group posters 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

    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 group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb group

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

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

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

    You forgot about the 2 people that post to complain about the people that quote an entire post to say "Me too".

    Not that I'm complaining...

    You also forgot the one or two French posters telling the original poster that French light bulbs are far superior to US light bulbs.

    And let us not forget the Arab poster that will point out the failed light bulb is an indication of the level of corruption and immorality in the US.

    Then there is the Rev Jackson claiming that the decline (since the 70's) of Black Lights, is racist and send money now so he can organise the Million Lamps A-Lighting protest.
