... does it take to change a lightbulb? Stole this from another forum;

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
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.

Sounds about right. :doh: Which one(s) are you?

You should've started a thread saying that you changed a light bulb, to see how close we'd get :laughing:

Also, the proper term is "light bulb" lol.

EDIT: You forgot the members who would form a "Light Bulb Fanclub" :laughing:

I'm the one who moves it to Lighting section....but there wouldn't be anybody to ague the case with because they don't much care, lol.

You can be the blonde who says...."Light Bulb?"...sorry :ohcrap:

I'm the "didn't we go through this already" guy
And also the spelling/grammar in flames. I'm pretty pedantic about spelling, but usually only correct someone if they've written something stupid/flamey with wrong spelling/grammar.

Yep. It was probably over 2 years ago actually. Unless I'm thinking of another forum...

I like that part.

"Hey, you spelt light bulb wrong!"

So true...

Someone told me that only one psychologist is needed to change a bulb, but that the bulb must really want to change!

I'd probably be one of the ones to say that either this forum is not about light bulbs, or that it was in the wrong section.

Or could just reply and say "I concur."
