Q: How many Forum members does it takes to change a coil?

* 1 to change the coil and to post that the coil has been changed.
* 14 to share similar experiences of changing coils and how the coil could have been changed differently.
* 7 to caution about the dangers of changing coils.
* 1 to move it to the detector related section.
* 2 to argue then move it to the chit chat section.
* 7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about coils.
* 5 to flame the spell checkers.
* 3 to correct spelling/grammar flames.
* 6 to argue over whether it's "coil" or "search head" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid.
* 2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "search loop".
* 15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "coil" is perfectly correct.
* 19 to post that this forum is not about coils and to please take this discussion to a search loop forum.
* 11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use coils and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum.
* 36 to debate which method of changing coils is superior, where to buy the best coils, what brand of coils work best for this technique and what brands are faulty.
* 7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different coils.
* 4 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 coils relevant to this group.
* 13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
* 5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the coil controversy.
* 4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"
* 13 to say "do a Google search on coils before posting questions about coils".
* 1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.
* 1 forum member who actually went and bought one after reading all this advice - and found that it wouldn't fit . . . which started off a new thread about detector retailers and how good/bad they are.

So there. Grin
