Okay, I am not, in any way, supporting the notion that post count makes you superior in any way. I just like nice round numbers.

So, to commemorate the occaision, I thought I would share this message about how ridiculous forums can get. Note: this is not exclusively aimed at any person or persons here, but some of us are guilty, and you know who you are! :P


Forum rules on how 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

7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in emails 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 group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb group

11 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group

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

I agree, I think that we should indeed count them.

That is about Thirteen responses from seven or eight people. :lol:

Oh, hang on, we have missed a point .....

This discussion needs to be moved to another thread as it has nothing to do with lightbulbs ............ :lol:

That is better.
