    Default How many Linkers does it take to change a light bulb?

    How many Linkers does it take 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 VH Rumor Mill section

    2 to argue then move it to the Non-Music 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 E2-Journeymen Linkers 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.

    Voivod,

    You forgot to mention the wanna-be Journeymen (with grossly overinflated post counts, relying on smiley faces for content) who wait until a newbie climbs a ladder to change a lightbulb, sneer, jeer and attempt to knock the newbie off the ladder, snarfing, gobbling & forcefeeding themselves on zealous attitude binging, only to be unable to change that same lightbulb themselves....

    Default Enligthen us please!

    I always thought it was the old "Incandescent bulb vs Fluorescent bulb" arguement, but whatever....


    and don't forget the 'starving for attention' posters who use shocking thread titles about light bulbs to attract everyone's attention only to leave the reader wondering why they read the pointless post and begging for the time wasted to be returned.
