How many posters does it take to change a light bulb?

1 to change the light bulb

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

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

My posters don't change light bulbs...they just hang on my walls, the lazy bums.

Idaho....

Before you post anything on Interference, you are supposed to "search" and make sure that topic has never been posted before.

I'll give you some good ideas of things that have never been done here:

Coke or Pepsi
Which (Insert movie or TV show) charachter are you
describe the person above you
comparison (pick one of the two)
How old are you
Where do you live
Good night Interference
This weather really sucks
Happy (insert holiday)
Look at me, I have 200 posts

My creativity is lacking at the moment..but you can try these threads. No one has ever done them...and they may be intersting.

No, for real.

Well that's fine and dandy Zone, but the search is disabled or something because it doesn't work on my account. And second of all, WTF am I going to search for? Light bulbs? Come on.

I ain't leaving Boomcha...
