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

OK this is shamelesly stolen from another place I frequent but it was just to good to not share......

------------------------------------------------------

just some humor for the day, enjoy

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

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...

Actually I think the topic should have gone into the hardware forum. Although not being directly computer related, the use of incandescent lighting whilst performing tasks on your computer generally go hand in hand.

Assuming that this 'lightbulb / light bulb' is of the domestic variety.

Cool Mr. Green Mr. Green

Domestic Variety ???!!!??? You must be kidding!! EVERYONE knows whether you are in Big Lake, Canada or Bumfruck, Egypt a lightbulb/light bulb is a lightbulb/light bulb is a lightbulb/light bulb! Glass bulb, filament, electricity...it's not rocket science.

You know, I used to work in this industry, and it's actually called a "lamp," not a light bulb.

"6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... "


Make that 7, to encompass the "lamp" nomenclature.....

Domestic generally refers to glass encapsulated tungsten filament with a wattage rating up to about 150 watt...not to mention fluorescent strip lighting...Where as industrial type lighting could be termed as sodium, halogen etc or fluorescent strip lighting with tubes of 8 foot in length. Mr. Green
