You forgot 17 to rant about the evils of CFLs (even though the bulb in question wasn't a CFL) 12 to make snarky political comments

You forgot about (1) mori correcting everyone's English.
I do that only occasionally anymore because my efforts are not appreciated. I saw a hilarious post yesterday, but refrained from commenting. Someone who shall remain unnamed posted about "half-wits thinking there immune to virii." Double-whammy! Actually, it's a triple whammy if you take into account the guy's chosen forum name, which implies he's very smart.

How many BITOGers does it take to start the essentially same and seemingly endless discussion in a few new threads every week? It takes just two. I bet you know who they are. ;\)
