    I "borrowed' this from another forum. So, unashamedly stolen from somewhere else:

    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 Electrical 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

    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.

    oh - too funny.

    6 months ago I was able to make a decision alone, now I think - what would the nikon cafe members recommend! - and so I'm now one of the 14 sharing similar experiences!

    Haha, the only thing missing is something about using the search function!
