    How many internet 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.

    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....

    Not really humor if it's true, tho..

    You and 47 other posters tend to say that. :eusa_angel:

    I'm surprised there's not a number for the amount that put one on ignore because they get so upset and bent out of shape.
