-111 say that we all use light bulbs and that discussing changing them in a public forum may offend some.
-306 argue about the best place to buy bulbs, the best way to change them, and which brand of bulbs are best.
-27 link to sites where you can see various bulbs

-33 sort the previous posts and compile one big text and add their own opinion at the end.
-12 claim that they are leaving the forum forever because they can't stand the thread
