5 will respond without using words; only a string of marginally relevant emoticons.
:uglyhamme :goodjob: :feelbette

10 will have the word "edited" below their posts to cover up their inaccurate comments about light bulbs after being flamed.

1 to post an analogy that argues how replacing the light bulb is like buying a new car and it's better to fix the broken one

And then 5 more to post how car analogies don't apply.

At least a few who want to spend 99 cents on a standard brightness bulb and expect to use it like a $1.99 high-brightness bulb.

then there will probably be at least 1 who will start a poll on how many people would use a bulb with this feature...

many who will join the bulb makers "prototype evaluation team" to test it...

and when it becomes available to the public, at least 1 who will ask if there is a way to "force" the stores in their area to carry it before their scheduled delivery date...

And someone will put this into their signature:

Replacing a defective light bulb
DOES NOT start a new commitment.

At least 17 will ask how to change a light bulb whose fixture is mounted high on the roof of their two-story house, and soon, how to brush snow off said light bulb to eliminate snow fade. :shrug:

And someone will put this into their signature:


That would be weird, what kind of commitment would you need for a light bulb? :confused:

But even if you did have to aggree to one, it's highly unlikely that any reputable bulb maker would erroneously extend a commitment for replacing a defective one...

Three to complain that the CSRs know nothing about light bulbs and claim that D* does not support their use.
Remember, when it comes to audio/video, more is always better. (This does NOT apply to remote controls!)

The answer - ZERO.
