    Answer:

    1 to change the light bulb and 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

    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 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, 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"

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

    1 OE user to quote all the previous responces in an HTML post so
    the other 535 previous respondents can flame him to hell

    and one Linux user to say don't change the lightbulb, welcome to the
    darkside :)



















    its funny cuz its trueeee :noes:

    You forgot the 1 Y2kAccord that will post telling you that you should have replaced the 100 watt American lightbulb with a 40 watt Asian one.

    Pretty good. You (roughryder9969) must have seen the thread in Off Topic where a coulple of guys were prattling on about how a lamp is not a bulb and a bulb is not a lamp. These so-called experts argued for pages about the proper nomenclature...so very amusing in an OT type of way.

    You should tell people you are a 40watt bulb...

    because you're not very bright.
