Default How many members does it take to change a lightbulb?

I just came across this in another forum - hadn't seen it before and thought others might enjoy!

********

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

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 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

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.

It just takes Bruce, and the rest if us making fun of the user having a meltdown over a light bulb that does not worked when not plugged in. :-O

You left out the 2 moderators to ban three members for violating the user terms and the 137,000 spammers.

What kind of lightbulbs are we talking about? We need full model numbers, specifications, firmware versions, Mac or Windows, etc. If you're going to come on here asking for help, avoiding Avid's LCFs (Lightbulb Care Fees), you need to be specific:

* Have you tried uninstalling the lightbulb ('clean uninstall') and re-installing after trashing preferences? Standing on one foot? Same again but on the previous three versions of your operating system?

* Are these the Sylvania 60w with NOS Siberian filaments? If not, why not?!

* Do they have a blue diagonal stripe on the top left corner of the box and is the serial number within the range specified as '60s California production' on www.lightbulbdb.com (please don't!)

* Have you installed the LBTK (work it out!)?

* Do your other lightbulbs work?

:)
