    Fun thought's LOL

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

    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.

    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
    Source: RC Hangout http://www.rchangout...ead.php?t=24089

    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".

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Q: How many Surrealists does it take to change a lightbulb?

    A: Two. One to hold the Giraffe, and the other to fill the bathtub with brightly colored machine tools.
