    Default Forum lightbulbs

    Saw this on a Tivo mailing list.

    ----

    How many forum posters 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 "lamp"

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

    156 to email the participant's ISPs complaining that they are
    in violation of their "acceptable use policy"

    109 to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to
    please take this discussion to a lightbulb group

    203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, off-topic
    forum, and lightbulb group about changing light bulbs be
    stopped
    111 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all se
    light bulbs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this roup

    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

    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

    33 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety
    including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"

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

    19 to quote the "Me too's" to say "Me three"

    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....
