    EDIT: okay, I think this has dropped far enough for me to lock it now...the thread really has nothing to contribute anymore anyway...

    ---------------------------------------------

    Okay, I stole this from the FanFilms board, and it's definitely more of a JC thing than a FanForce thing, but I thought it was funny, so figured I'd post it here...


    How many message Forum members does it takes to change a light bulb?

    1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed

    10 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, whereto buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty

    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 tothis 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"

    I would've been with the 2 who CORRECTLY identified the item as a LAMP...


    I probably would've been one of the 7 to post links as well.

    Or maybe it was one of those little light bulbs inside your fridge that turns on and off depending on if the door is open or not?

    They forgot the 2 or 3 people in another board that will beat the subject to death just because they're bored.

    Personally, a quick link to this: [link=http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=lightbulb]http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=lightbulb[/link] might have saved a lot of people the grief of debating what a lightbulb is.
