7 to argue over whether it’s "lightbulb" or "light bulb".

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.

154 to email the participant’s ISPs complaining that they are in violation of their "acceptable use policy".

118 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum.

203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, off-topic forum, and lightbulb forum about changing light bulbs be stopped.

111 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum.

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.

98 to argue that their version of screw in or bayonet is better than the other and always will be.

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....
