Re: How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?

LMFAO isn't proper grammer.

Also I don't see a source cited for the original information, seems suspicious to me. Since I've worked for a major forum in the past I have to say, using the term 'post' is incorrect. It is more accurate to say 'forum entry'.

I'll be refering you to the moderators, k thanks, bye.
