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

    * 3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

    AHAB,

    I'm SHOCKED!!!!!! You left out "1 to break the threads into categories."

    Also, can someone do a spreadsheet as to what % are in each category, and make it so we can sort by name, state, region, and ATA average. That would be helpful.

    Ahab, There are a lot of good nonprofit organizations that need volunteer help. You obviously have a lot of time on your hands. Whay don't you donate some of it. Heck, your local trap club could probably use a lot of volunteer help.
