    How many Forum members

    How many forum members...


    How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?

    1 to change the light bulb

    1 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

    6 to argue over whether it's ''lightbulb'' or ''light bulb'' ... plus
    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 forum is not about light bulbs and to please
    take this discussion to a lightbulb forum

    203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, BMW forum,
    off-topic forum, and lightbulb 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

    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''

    6 that flame them for not using the Search feature

    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''

    16 posts of two forum members that are exclusively talking to each
    other only about lightbulbs and what they did that weekend

    1 moderator that comes in and says something about doing it wrong
    and that everyone who disagrees gets a warning

    1 new forum member to respond to the original post 6 months from
    now and start it all over again
