    111 to defend the posting to this list saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this forum
    3 to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this list which makes light bulbs relevant to this forum

    I actually think the answer is just 1. The first line says "1 to change and ..." The rest didn't change it. Maybe I'm thinking too much about it?
