Discussion in 'The Clubhouse Bar' started by Bullitt, Feb 3, 2008.

    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 search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"

    1 to hijack the thread and ask how to change the horn

    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

    FFS, I laugh because there are some very strong hints of the truth.

    Last i checked we had nearly 3,000 members.

    Did you take maths in school?

    And last time I checked we had 6 775 members.

    ...Glass houses and stones

    And how many of them have ever showed up at a TRF lightbulb changing convention?

    And how many have contributed more than the mandatory amount of posts needed to get in to the gaming section?

    I was class at maths

    LOL. WTF are you on about, you do realise Mite was telling a joke, yeah?

    Or maybe - and get this, this is quite funny, but maybe - it's been a while since i checked how many members we had, but i was damn sure convinced we had enough to accumulate the amount told in that joke.

    LOL, this is very true. It's always a good laugh when some new guy comes in, rustles up a thread that's been dead buried for a year and just says "yes, i agree". Then the whole argument starts up again all guns blazing, and strangely enough the instigator buggers off and you never hear from him again.

    Great work Mite.

    Calm down dude, it's obvious you were in a bad mood or something. I have those to. It's well documented on these forums :p

    If you didn't notice I was the first to reply to the joke. I had a good laugh, because it's pretty true. Don't associate me with that guy who was whining.

    You didn't have to add that math class sneer though, cause it ended up coming back to you.

    And what makes it even more funny is that we're playing into the joke. We're proving Mite's point :D

    Yeah, so in this case why does it even matter how many members we have? It makes your reply to my drole comment completely unnecessary.

    I also love the way you ignore my pertinent comment about posting just to get into the gaming section.
  13. I won't ignore it - you're totally wrong as it happens.

    Yeah, my bad Steve-o. 1) It's hard to interpret how people put things across online and 2) I was a bit grump.
    I apologise, i didn't need to snap.
    But i still stand by what i said, last time i checked we still had enough members to make the joke work. :p

    Oh, and i apologise to el_tk, not sure if you were joking first time. But responding to you like that inevitably brought out a bitter side in you as well.
    We're all human.
