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.


So true :shock:

Ah, brilliant. And one that obviously strikes a chord with mods in particular! :lol: 'Course you missed out the two members who then point out that it's all the government's fault that light bulbs have to be changed at all, and it's all because of Part P... :wink:

Cheers, Alf

Gill! The use of your bunker, if you'd be so kind. :shock:

The lightbulb is obviously the thing you put into the lamp to gain light. Whereas light bulbs are the small ones (e.g. crocus) you plant in the garden, as opposed to the big, heavy ones (e.g. daffodil). :roll:

Trev. (thinking he really must get out more).

Travis,

142? maybe but the member list shows that 208 members have never posted

I guess the silent minority can just shake their heads too!

<rant on> Talking about light bulbs, did you know that the health and safety people have stopped schools having lights fitted onto machinary such as lathes and grindstones? The reason - students could remove the light bulb, stick their fingers in the socket, and get an electric shock!

I don't suppose it matters to H&S that to see clearly whats happening at the working face you need to have a torch handy now </rant off>

This would be the same health and safety people that came out with the regulation that you cannot climb a ladder unless it is tied off at the top, completely ignoring the fact that you have to climb the ladder in order to tie it to a safety point.

H & S instructing schools to remove lamps?

What has happened to 'commonsense' in this country?

Where has it gone?

Sighs in exasperation :x
