Q: How many forum members does it takes 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
1 to move it to the Lighting section
2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section
7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
5 to flame the spell checkers
3 to correct spelling/grammar flames
6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid
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
19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum
11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
36 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
7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs
4 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
13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
5 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?"
13 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.

I'm sure there will be at least 2 who will whine that they never get to try to change lightbulbs because there is a conspiracy among a few members to change all of the lightbulbs themselves.

Nah, they would just be complaining that the lightbulb companies were telling them which sockets to use.

Then add at least one admin posting that since lightbulbs can break, leading to sharp edges, they are dangerous and are not allowed in caches.....

9 to gather and form the official light bulb changing authority in the area.
1 to change the bulb.
1 to re-change the bulb, since the first was installed incorrctly and broke
due to poor installation instructions
10 more to praise the hard work of the group
5 more to brownnose the bulb changer
12 more to live vicariously thru the bulb changing of others
1 to call the fire department after the 2nd bulb short circuits, causing a fire.
3 to put out the fire
10 to deny any knowledge of a burned out bulb, or any instruction given to change it
1 to call an attorney for the bulb changer

15 people to claim "I told you so" even after having offered no opinion in the first place. . . .
