Is this RIBNET

How many forum users does it take to change a lightbulb?
1 to change the light bulb & to post that the light bulb has been changed

5 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs & how the light bulb could have been changed differently

4 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

1 to move it to another section of the site

2 to argue then move it to the techno & gadgets section

2 to argue again then move it somewhere else

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

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"

12 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry & that "light bulb" is perfectly correct

10 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs & to please take this discussion elsewhere

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

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 & what brands are faulty

5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb conversation

7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly & then post the corrected URL's

5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb conversation & 4 more 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 & start it all over again



See if you can put a name to each line i have a few ideas #

Same one

And now he gets a whole thread dedicated to him. Probably will do great things for his diminished ego.
