    6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another

    6 to condemn those 6 as stupid

    2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term
    is "lamp"

    15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct (Sounds like Nakkas lol)

    19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb forum

    11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
