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 search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"
1 to hijack the thread and ask how to change the horn
1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

wait... where is the post that says not to post the url in WebmasterWorld? then of course you get the post after that telling everyone to look at the original posters profile and the url will be there, maybe a variation of that post would be "sticky me if you want the url" and i swear to god typing WebmasterWorld auto corrected itself. grrr darn preview keeps doing it.. how about WebmasterWorld? nope that didn't either lets try WebmasterWorld
that is to funny, im going to get it done... "w" "m" "w"..ha can anyone else figure out a sensical way of typing the main letters to WebmasterWorld with out it auto correcting?

One post to point out the cut/paste/edit of the original post needed to be done more carefully as there's one line left that betrays its origin/change of subject ;)

Although a quick search shows up a couple of hundred posts whose posters didn't understand/read every line.
