How many UseNet readers does it take to change a light bulb?

Answer:  1,331

1 to change the light bulb and to post to the UseNet 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 posters' ISPs complaining about the light bulb
discussion and its inappropriateness to this newsgroup.

41 to correct the spelling in the grammar/spelling flames

109 to post that this newsgroup is not about light bulbs and to please take
this thread to alt.lite.bulb.

259 to point out the bad spelling of alt.lite.bulbs and proclaim support
for creating alt.light.bulbs.

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

111 to defend the posting to this newsgroup saying that we all use light
bulbs, therefore the posts **are** relevant to this newsgroup.

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
newsgroup, which makes light bulbs relevant to this newsgroup.

Very clever, but this post would be more appropriate
on rec.jokes.#.bulbs not r.a.s.f1 :-)

So the answer is 1.  The other 1,330 only discuss the changing of said
bulb, but do not partake.

Not in rasf1..!   It would be 1,333...

In addition to the 1,331 detailed,   JBG would post saying that Damon
Hill couldn't change a light bulb without breaking it.   Then Mark J F
would flame JBG for not having declared his expertise in the field of
light-bulb changing!   :)
