    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

    ;)

    Any death would be too quick.

    You are behind the curve. It has become 5 years now. ;)

    This is funny.

    Missing things like TL;DR requests, +1 spam, etc :)

    that obviously represents the missing: "1 who posts that this is a repost, that it was funnier when Jesus originally posted it to Al Gore shortly after he invented the internet, or that this is just a c&p from reddit a week ago."


    and just for macrumors: "1 posting per hour by someone asking when the next version of the lightbulb in question will be released, what improvements will it have, and if they should wait for it in the dark or just buy the current lightbulb."

    some macrumors specific parts obviously missing:

    13 discussing the color and font of the light bulb box

    5 discussing the actual unpacking of the light bulb

    2 telling everybody to wait for the next revision
