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

How many forum 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

1 to move it to the Lighting section

2 to argue then move it to the Technical 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.

Rick, you have obviously reached the saturation level concerning forums. Perhaps you need to put down the mouse and move away from the computer. Now I see you are from Saskatchewan. Now is that a state or a province? Maybe it's a region. It's not a city, is it? OK, could I have some help here from the forum? I think we need to start a new topic. Are there others here from Canada? Could we get some feedback from them?

Saskatchewan is a Province in Canada, North of ND/MT

I had an for a response to this post, but the light bulb (or is that lightbulb) burned out before I could get it to the keyboard. Besides, any psychiatrist will tell you that the bulb must WANT to change before it can be changed.

Now, you see, you should have replaced that lamp/lightbulb/light bulb, with an LED.

Heres a link to find the proper LED.

Rick,
WHAT have you done?!?! Your wretched riddle has become self-manifesting! Well, there's no stopping the thing now, (just like when the brakes went out on my last skoolie, OUCH!).
