    How many forum 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

    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 picky-retentive

    2 industry professionals to inform the thread readers 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 report the participants to the moderators that they are in violation of the "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, off-topic forum, and lightbulb group 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"

    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"

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

    For the noobs, is how you find out about lightbulbs or light bulbs or lamps

    Three to comment on the wattage needed to affect the lay rate of a hen.

    Four to give the number of birds one can do this with per bulb.

    Nine to declare the number of hours one needs to keep the bulb on per day at a given time of year for their latitudes.

    Twenty nine to disagree with one or more of the above.

    Two moderators to clean up the thread after it gets completely out of hand.

    This IS a poultry board after all.
