53 to flame the spell checkers.
 
41 to correct spelling/grammar flames.
 
6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"...another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive
 
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.
 
156 to email the participant's ISPs complaining that they are in violation of their "acceptable use policy".

203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, off-topic forum, and lightbulb group about changing light bulbs be stopped.
 
111 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this group.

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.

And then it crosses my mind.... Shouldn't we consider the rights of the light bulbs? What if they don't want to be forcefully evicted and another forcefully twisted into a socket. Who are we to enslave them in such ways. How would you like a jolt of electricity shot up your backside several times a day? Maybe the dimming of the bulb means we have finally broken their spirit. Perhaps the bulb burning out is the only way it figures it can escape and be free.

Go now, remove the tortured bulbs from their sockets, carry them outside and fling them up in the air shouting, "Fly! Be free!"

while all these are very good thoughts I would like to add that maybe we need a national light bulb day to celebrate and reflect on the importance of the light bulb, common or otherwise.
