    * 6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid

    * 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
