A: 1,331:

203 to demand that cross posting to alt.grammar, alt.spelling and alt.punctuation about changing light bulbs be stopped.

111 to defend the posting to this list saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts **are** relevant to this forum.

306 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.

27 to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs

14 to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly, and to post corrected URLs.

3 to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this list which makes light bulbs relevant to this list.

12 to post to the list that they are unsubscribing because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

19 to quote the "Me Too's" to say, "Me Three."

3 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ.

Nonsense. GE bulbs have straight filaments whilst Osram have those more artistic curly ones. I've always been an Osram man.

Adam, have you considered that straight filaments represent the Marxist tendencies underlying post-cold war production methods throughout corporate America ? No, I thought not. Curly filaments are individually expressive and more representative of a free society. I would go as far as to say that straight filaments are decidedly un-American.

 

EDIT. ; I notice that the dominant colours on your link are pink, white and blue ! I rest my case.
