How many Facebook group members does it take.....

How many Facebook group members does it take to change a spark plug?

1 to change the spark plug and to post that spark plug has been changed.

14 to share similar experiences of changing spark plugs and how the spark plug could have been changed differently.

7 to caution about the dangers of changing spark plugs.

27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing spark plugs. (I belong in this group)

15 know-it-alls who claim *they* were in the industry, and that "spark plug" is an electrical device threaded into the cylinder of an internal-combustion engine to ignite the fuel mixture by producing timed sparks between electrodes.

2 to post that this group is not about spark plugs and to please take this discussion to a spark plug group.

27 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all use spark plugs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this group.

16 to debate which method of changing spark plugs is superior, where to buy the best spark plugs, what brand of spark plugs work best for this technique, and what brands are faulty.

2 to post URL's where one can see examples of different spark plugs.

12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the spark plug controversy.

4 to suggest that posters request the spark plugs FAQ.

16 to post "F".

44 to ask what is a "F"?

1 snowflake to say it's unfair on trans or gender neutrals and have not been properly accomodated in spark plug traditional male/female thread postings

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

3 to say "do a Google search on spark plugs before posting questions about spark plugs".

14 to post photos of spark plugs they own.

1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again....

Re: How many Facebook group members does it take.....

OOOH! You are naughty, but I liked it.

Think yourself lucky. If I had a FB account - which I've not - you would have had to ammend the number asking the Q? What is an F.

Hopefully it's a polite contraction for 'Foxtrot Oscar' but I very much doubt it. Who would want to P off 100,000 followers?

I think that one comes under:

1 snowflake to say it's unfair on trans or gender neutrals and have not been properly accomodated in spark plug traditional male/female thread postings; or,


12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the spark plug controversy.
