    Here, here. I'm really dumbfounded by the conservative animus against CFLs (which should be differentiated from the federal-mandate to use them). As best I can tell, it's just venting against Stuff Liberal People Like. Report

    CFLs aren't new. I've bought scores of them in this decade, with a much higher percentage burning out in a few weeks than with Edison bulbs. They certainly don't work as well as they ought to, but that's largely been covered up by the press until recently because CFLs are SWPL.

    My guess is that chains just buy the cheapest Chinese non-brand CFLs they can buy, so we don't get the kind of quality we could be getting. Report
