:) apologies is someone else has already posted this

How many Forum Subscribers 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.

1 to move it to the Lighting Forum section.

2 to argue then move it to the Electrical Forum 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' URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

4 to 'post' that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URLs.

3 to 'post' about links they found from the URLs 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."

Although the numbers are erroneous the 'path' is pretty much correct.

I am one of the 'early 7' although I usually drop in later with frequent dross and inane comments ........... I'm quite upset to be omitted as a category! :):)
