  • 41 to correct spelling/grammar flames
  • 6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"
  • Another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive
  • Two industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"
  • 27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs
  • 12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy
  • 4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ
  • 44 to ask what is a "FAQ"
  • 9 bloggers to trackback from their own blogs.
  • 10 comments from people with lightbulb fetishes.

  • 4 to say "didn't we cover this a few months ago?"

  • Then there's the person blogging (presumably while half asleep) who asks: "What's a light bulb?"
