    How many forum members.....

    Just found this:

    How many forum members does it takes 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
    1 to move it to the Lighting section
    2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section
    7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts 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 forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a 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 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 post 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 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

    Hehe, got to the bit about "bulbs" and thought "hang on, proper term is 'lamp'!" And lo and behold, there it was: 2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"

    Nice one 8)

    Exchange the term light bulb for iron and that would be closer to what goes on in EduGeek. Eh Mandy

    (and yes ... spelling needs to be checked before posting s/excahnge/exchange ... and don't get me started on the missing '?' from the rhetorical question)

    As in, "How many forum members to change an iron?" ?

    A very pressing matter I must agree...

    @DookieWookie
    Still had the desired effect though

    @webman
    well ICT techs don't have much cause for changing light bulbs these days, unless you do a stint at Blackpool

    But you know what it's like in schools... if it's electrical and has a wire somewhere - that'll be IT

    Not allowed to change light bulbs without a risk assessment, the necessary safety equipment and a coned off area That's assuming that you've had the training and are qualifies to operate the bayonet mechanism :P
