    2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section
    7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
    5 to flame the spell checkers
    3 to correct spelling/grammar flames
    6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid
    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
    19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum
    11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
    36 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

    4 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
    13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
    5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy

    Nonono, my uncle's friend's brother's cat was in the industry and he says it's perfectly acceptable to use the word "light bulb".

    I don't see '1 poster to use the extra light as an excuse to streak the thread and give everyone an extra good look'.

    I feel so abandoned. :hanky:

    1.

    Durf holds the lightbulb, and the forum revolves around him.

    But it took me so bloody long to make this one, though I'm glad I've managed to knock him out of the race.

    OMG - Only 1 post/60 secs, how long has it been since I've gotten THAT message. Wow. I'm becoming a regular spamm0r.

    I think we need a constitutional amendment to ban the changing of light bulbs in this country...the liberals are trying to jam their evil light bulb changing methods down our throats, corrupting our children!

    Liberal light bulb changing will ruin this nation!

    How many Klingons does it take to change a lightbulb?

    None. Klingons aren't afraid of the dark.

    What do they do with the old lightbulb?

    Execute it for failure.

    What do they do with the one who changes the lightbulb?

    Execute him for cowardice.
