Default Changing a light bulb


How many d-i y 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.

20 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

18 to flame the spell checkers.

31 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."

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.

12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot
handle the light bulb controversy.

4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ.

40 to ask what is a "FAQ?"

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

43 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about
light bulbs."

1 forum lurker to respond to the original post a month from now and start it
all over again.

LATE ADDITION!!!!

feeling ..
