How many Forons does it take to screw in a light bulb?

How many Forons does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Postby Hank_Venison » Wed May 16, 2007 4:15 pm

1 to change the light bulb then post about it

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could've been changed differently

1 to move it to the Lighting folder

2 to argue and then move it to the Electrical folder

7 to point out grammar/spelling errors in post about changing light bulbs

5 to flame the spell checkers

3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

6 to argue whether it's a light bulb or lightbulb

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is Lamp

15 know it all 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 the discussion to the 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 discuss the dangers of changing light bulbs without a professional opinion

5 to post a disclaimer that they are not light bulb experts, nor do they play one on TV and that anyone planning on changing their own light bulb should consult a professional

7 to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs

4 to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then to post the correct URLs

3 to post about links they found from the URLs 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

And one out of town neo-con claiming there was nothing wrong with the light bulb in the first place and that librul's new religion is believing the myth of the burnt out light bulb.

You forgot about thread crapping. Like so: where do I take expired CFL light bulbs?

Not to mention the whole CFL vs incandescent bulb argument. That would probably be nine pages alone.

In the '60s we didn't change lightbulbs, they changed us.

1 to point out that it was a lot cooler changing lightbulbs 10, 20, 30, 40 years ago and how this is another example of how Madison's lost it's way.
