      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.

      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'156 to email the
      participant'<WBR>s IS
      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 URLs where one
      can see examples of
      different light bulbs.

      14 to post that the URLs
      were posted incorrectly and
      then post the corrected URLs.

      3 to post about links they
      found from the URLs 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 a "FAQ" is.

      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....
