6 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

50 to flame the spell checkers

48 to correct spelling/grammar flames

7 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

154 to email the participant's ISPs complaining that they are in violation of their "acceptable use policy"

118 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

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

1 to ask if when buying a new bulb they should go for a screw or bayonet type

98 to argue that their version of screw in or bayonet is better than the other and always will

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"

44 to ask what is a "FAQ"

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

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

:D

DarthSporkyHow many forum posters does it take to change a light bulb?

0 because they don't have the proper administrative access. However, it takes at least 7 members to repeat each other saying that the light bulb needs to be changed in the first place...

LMAO @ Sporky

Good one! A perfect description of generic forum activities :lol: And I see a little bit of irrelevance has already been brought into the thread, proving Spork right :rofl:
