[IP] Risking a deviation from the usual DM diet

Does anyone find that the following affects their BGs?  

Q: How many internet mail list subscribers does it take to change a light

A: Exactly Five Hundred:

   1 to change the light bulb and to post to the mail list
     that the light bulb has been changed
   7 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and
     how the light bulb could have been changed differently.
   4 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.
 106 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.
  17 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about
     changing light bulbs.
  21 to flame the spell/grammar checkers
  20 to correct spelling in the spelling/grammar flames.
  32 to post that this list is not about light bulbs and to
     please take this email exchange to alt.lite.bulb
  15 to demand that cross posting to alt.grammar,
     alt.spelling and alt.punctuation about changing light bulbs be
  49 to write to the list administrator complaining about the
     light bulb discussion and its inappropriateness to this mail
  41 to defend the posting to this list saying that we all
     use light bulbs and therefore the posts **are** relevant to this
     mail list.
  12 to post URLs where one can see examples of different
     light bulbs
   8 to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly, and to
     post corrected URLs.
   2 to post about links they found from the URLs that are
     relevant to this list which makes light bulbs relevant to this
  69 to concatenate all posts to date, then quote them
     including all headers and footers, and then add pointedly, "Me
  24 to quote the "Me Too's" and happily add, "Me Three!"
   6 to post to the list that they are unsubscribing because
     they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.
   3 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ.
   1 to propose new alt.change.lite.bulb newsgroup.
   9 to say this is just what alt.physic.cold_fusion was
     meant for, leave it here.
  53 to vote for alt.lite.bulb.
Me either. ;^)

Anika, so sue me.
