A very close friend of mine on the board sent me this. I have to share because it's funny and true. She modified it for me.

Stole this from another group

7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

17 purists who use candles and are offended by light bulb discussions.

6 to argue over whether it's 'lightbulb' or 'light bulb'.

Another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid.

22 to tell THOSE 6 to stop being jackasses.

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is 'lamp'.

15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that 'light bulb' is perfectly correct.

249 to post memes and gifs

19 to post that this sub-forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb sub-forum.

16 to post that they are sick of light bulb threads and 47 remind them that they don’t need to open and read the threads.

7 to ask if the brands of light bulbs used are worth the money.

19 to tell them that if they like the light bulbs, just buy them.

5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs.

3 people to post that they are stupid for spending that much on a light bulb.

15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and use their own light bulbs.

3 people to post that they can’t figure out how to post pictures of their light bulbs.

6 people point them to the sticky on how to post pics.

2 people to post that still can’t do it. And complain to admins. Again.

7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's.

13 to comment "This thread sucks".

5 to post to the forum that they will no longer post or are leaving because they cannot handle the $!%cking light bulb controversy.

The Owner and Captain launch a ship and had envisioned a planned course they hope to chart. Tides, prevailing winds, unplanned weather events, hidden rocks, and Mother Nature at her finest all have their influence on the course. Mutinies are tried yet due to strong leadership they continued forward. Crews change yet the ship continues on its envisioned course into the unknown.

This is same for WFF. Due to the strong leadership of its ADMIN and MODs WFF will continue on course. We are thankful to the prior leadership and will always be remembered and respected.

Jerry you were the Chief Mate that guided this site with unparalleled professionalism for many years. You set the bar for all of those that follow.

Thank you for all you have done, our appreciation can not be put put into words. You have earned your retirement, enjoy and keep looking forward...

@Jerry Daschofsky When you come here as a normal member, i hope you will still have some power to tell people to setal down? And that those people will repect you because you were a mod! Enjoy what life is bringing you! You are a good dude!!!
I will fade away to being a board member. I never did this out of a power trip or to earn respect. I don't need it after I'm gone. It'll be the job of the new mod or Chris to handle it. I will respect whatever their call is in the situation, since it won't be my call anymore or my place to tell people to get in line. :)

I didn't write it. But maybe we should make @Swimmy the moderator of fashion? ;-)
