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 say "didn’t we go through this already a short time ago?"

How many car salesmen does it take to change a light bulb?

I'm going to run the numbers and then check with the general manager. Sit tight and I'll be right back. I think you're going to like these numbers....
