How many forumites 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 forum 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 forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to electrics UK forum

203 to demand that cross posting to general chat forum, electrics UK forum, and requesting a new forum about changing light bulbs be stopped

111 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this forum

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

Masona to make his statutory link to Screwfix

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 forum 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....

You forgot to add:

2503 to argue whether it's a Canon or Nikon lightbulb, and which lightbulb is better.

403 to butt in and say that Canon lightbulb, Nikon lightbulb, as long as it gives off light, its a good lightbulb

and 1 last one to say Nikon lightbulb, Canon lightbulb, it's not a lightbulb unless its a Leica lightbulb.

:D

And another 400 to say that it's not the brand of the lightbulb that is important, it is the person who is flicking the switch.

Variant: it does not matter if it's a black lightbulb or a white lightbulb - as long as it makes light it is a good lightbulb.
