      In view of recent off-topic discussion and controversy, just thought I'd
      post this, as it is pretty funny and some of it sounds very familiar.





      Question: How many E Mail List Subscribers does it take to change a light
      bulb?

      Answer: 1,001

      1 to change the light bulb and to post to the mail list 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

      106 to write to the list administrator complaining about the light bulb
      discussion and its inappropriateness to this mail list.

      41 to correct spelling in the spelling/grammar flames.

      99 to post that this list is not about light bulbs and to please take this
      email exchange to private email

      113 to demand that cross posting to other mail lists about changing light
      bulbs be stopped.

      101 to defend the posting to this list saying that we all use light bulbs
      and therefore the posts **are** relevant to this mail list.

      156 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 to post corrected
      URLs.

      3 to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this
      list which makes light bulbs relevant to this list.

      33 to concatenate all posts to date, then quote them including all headers
      and footers, and then add "Me Too."

      12 to post to the list that they are unsubscribing 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.

      1 to propose a new "Lite Bulb Changing" Mail List.

      47 to say this is just what the Mail List was meant for

      123 votes for the new Mail List`
