    How Many FlashKiters 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

    27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing
    light bulbs

    53 to flame the spell checkers

    41 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 "globe"

    15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light
    bulb" is perfectly correct

    156 to email the moderators 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

    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

    12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they
    cannot handle the light bulb controversy

    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 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and
    start it all over again.

    You guys might have better luck taking this thread to the light bulb and electricals forum. The coffee lounge is for mindless chat.

    mindless chat. I think you're over-qualified.

    add me to the flamer count, please.
