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.

Well, gee, John, that's about 185 members we'll need, and we're just shy of a hundred, no?

Guess we'll have to double up...I volunteer to cover all the grammar/spell checkers, plus the subsequent grammar/spelling flames, but we may need new members to cover all this.

Uhhhhh, Stan...you can't have anything to do with spelling, grammar, content or anything to do with the English language because only about 3 other board members can understand you. (Jerry ain't one of 'em or me, too)

If Stan DOUBLES UP, I am very definitely out of here. One of him is more than enough to drive a crazy man insane. (Or, is that "insaner"?)

Don't bother to correct me, Stan. It was a joke. Smile

But we love you man. We simply don't understand you. But all married men know what that is like.

Believe me, my wife doesn't get it, either, but thanks for your vote of support, both of you!

And Jerry, you're looking handsomer every day.

Why is it, do you think, that the more hair I shave off the better I look?

(Even the preacher asked me Sunday: "Jerry, what would you look like if you didn't shave your head?" Hunh?????
