How many message board members does it take to change a lightbulb?

Answer: 422

1 - to change the lightbulb and post it to the board that the bulb
has been changed.

14 - to respond and share similar experiences.

7 - to caution about the dangers of changing lightbulbs.

27 - to point out spelling errors and grammatical errors in postings
about changing lightbulbs.

53 - to flame the spell-checkers.

156 - to write to the administrator to complain about the lightbulb
discussion and its inappropriateness to the board.

111 - to defend the relevance of the lightbulb discussion.

27 - to post website addresses where one can see different examples
of lightbulbs.

14 - to complain that the website addresses are incorrect and post
correct ones.

12 - to "leave the board forever" because they can't handle the
lightbulb controversy.

addenda: 57 - to chime in that even though you are at home changing this lightbulb you should be wearing safety equipment.

1- moderator to remind that the light bulb better be in the barn to
keep this on topic.

Don't forget about the 20 that ask if you asked your vet, the 35 that
ask if you asked your trainer, and the 1 that asks if you talked to
the horsie psychic!!

Lets all just try to be the best people we can be !
