    How many forum members does it take?

    to change a light bulb?

    This is pretty funny....

    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.

    Fortunately, we don't seem to be this bad on the NASTAR Forum, but this describes some forums I have been to exactly.

    By the way, didn't we already cover this on another post? .....Just kidding!

    I think that we first have to determine if we are talking about incandescent or fluorescent lightbulbs.

    Would we be discussing iodine or bromine gas halogen?

    I think that we've had just about enough "enlightenment" on this subject. Although we really haven't touched on High Pressure Sodium.
