Default The problems the Moderators have

I posted this on NTT a while back. Doc copied it over to FF. I thought it was posted here too but if so I couldn't find it. Sorry if it is a dupe.

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

The problems the Moderators have
This one has been around for a while but when I saw it on another forum today I thought it was worth repeating. The person who posted it apparently found it on yet another forum!

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

This is a blatant theft from another forum.


How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

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 am bumping this up because I don't think the light bulb controversy has been resolved. No one has mentioned energy saving bulbs...

Very funny joke, though!

What about the person who sings the virtue of only using candles, condeming all previous posters because they are not shrinking their carbon footprint?

And the poster who points out that wax is a hydrocarbon that when burned puts out as much as if not more CO2 than a compact fluorescent bulb?

About 9 years.

Sometimes I look at "who's online" before I log off to see recipes and get ideas. That's when I spied this thread.
