You also forgot about:

2 to post about how Germans lightbulbs in WW2 were second to none but are now porked.

2 to refute the above posters with "unbiased" charts about german and american lightbulbs.

10 to accuse the lightbulb inventor of "bias" towards his country's lightbulbs.

1 to model new lightbulbs.

50 to praise the modeller's work.

3 to critizice the same work.

1 to spread rummors about upcoming patches for the bulbs.

5 to confirm/deny such rummors

1 to post a url to the leaked lightbulb patch

100 to whine about how the patch nerfed their favorite lightbulb.

etc...

You forgot those that argue for 'full real' with the shade on.

And the seemingly random number that complain about the positioning of the filament holder obscuring the view incorrectly.

The placement of the filament holder is ruining the game. I can't believe the incredible bias shown against that filament holder...I've got 14 charts and a signed statement from an actual Vet that says the filament holder is in the wrong place.

ATTENTION!!!

Lightbulb cheats are being used online!

I was flying in this server the other night and it was really dim like me, when suddenly the whole place became much brighter.

I asked the pilot I suspected of this flagrant behavior and I faintly but distinctly heard "" Clap on....clap off....the clapper.

FB will never be the same.
