  • How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb? :)

    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.

                      I think that is spelt "groan" Lisa, and there was no need for 3 exclamation marks where one would have done...

                      Sorry couldn't resist

                            Isn't changing light bulbs the tenants responsibility?

                            Probably been changed in the latest RTA review!

                              Or is it?
                              There is a great thread recently in these forums. It came up with sound reason why technically Lightbulbs may be actually the Landlords problem.

                              Eg.
                              If the element on your stove burns out the landlord fixes it.
                              A lightbulb is simply an element also which happened to burn out too.
