Alt-Photo-Weekly Reminder

And now for the weekly joke ...

Mailing list users changing light bulbs

Q: How many internet mail list subscribers does it take to change a light 
A: Exactly five hundred.

1 to change the light bulb and to post to the mail list that the light bulb 
has been changed.

7 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light
could have been changed differently or to caution about the dangers of 
changing light bulbs.

17 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

21 to flame the spell checkers.

49 to write to the list administrator complaining about the light bulb 
discussion and its inappropriateness to this mail list.

20 to correct spelling in the spelling/grammar flames.

32 to post that this list is not about light bulbs and to please take this 
email exchange to alt.lite.bulb.

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

41 to defend the posting to this list saying that we all use light bulbs and

therefore the posts are relevant to this mail list.

106 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
and what brands are faulty.

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

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

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

15 to concatenate all posts to date, then quote them including all headers 
and footers, and then add pointedly, "Me Too."

6 to post to the list that they are unsubscribing because they cannot handle

the light bulb controversy.

9 to quote the "Me Too's" and happily add, "Me Three!"

3 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ.

1 to propose new alt.change.lite.bulb newsgroup.

24 to say this is just what alt.physic.cold_fusion was meant for, leave it 

53 votes for alt.lite.bulb.


If you have a joke you would like to be used in this situation - please
email it to me privately please.
