    I've seen this one a few times, on more than one forum. Unfortunately, I'm probably just as guilty as anyone about my forum posting habits.

    Anyway, if you have not seen this yet, it maybe good for a chuckle or two...:)

    How Many Forum Members 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
    1 to move it to the Lighting section
    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

    1 post i don't know and don't care but needed to post anyway

    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

    7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs


    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

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


    13 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.

    oh I thought stuff like this wasn't in keeping with the spirit of CWD? Or, is it just when some folks post it?

    I forget who posted this before, and even though it did get shut down during a time of upheaval, I think it is hilarious!
