    Q: How many internet mail list subscribers does it take
    to change a light bulb?

    A: 1,331:
    1 to change the light bulb and to post to the mail
    list 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.
    27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about
    changing light bulbs.
    53 to flame the spell checkers
    156 to write to the list administrator complaining about
    the light bulb discussion and its inappropriateness
    to this mail list.
    41 to correct spelling in the spelling/grammar flames.
    109 to post that this list is not about light bulbs and
    to please take this email exchange to alt.lite.bulb
    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 mail list.
    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.
    33 to concatenate all posts to date, then quote
    them including all headers and footers, and then
    add "Me Too."
    12 to post to the list that they are unsubscribing
    because they cannot handle the light bulb
    19 to quote the "Me Too's" to say, "Me Three."
    4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ.
    1 to propose new alt.change.lite.bulb newsgroup.
    47 to say this is just what alt.physic.cold_fusion
    was meant for, leave it here.
