Very good...How many group 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
1 to post the url with lightbulb changing instructions (http://www.ehow.com/how_370_change-lightbulb.html)
1 to point out that the link given in the previous post is, infact, incorrect for those in the UK, where bayonet fitting lamps are the norm
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
1 Forum Moderator to point out the flaming is against the spirit of the Forum, PM all 723 contributors with the threat of expulsion if they continue in this fashion
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"
I to post 101 uses for a dead lightbulb
1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again....
Cover bulb with multiple layers of Papier-mâchéUses for a dead lightbulb? GRP moulds for casting resin paperweights etc. - polish the bulb with mould release wax, grp over it, trim to the circumference, smash the the bulb and it'll fall out cleanly.
But I am sure there would also be a debate about whether bayonet was actually the norm as most light fittings are now made for E27 bulbs. Plus of course, a discussion of the merits of B22 and E27
