In an active construction, I'd go with a plural verb for exactly that reason. "An average of four editors screw in each light bulb." I'm trying to figure out why I would intuitively favor "is" in the poll question. Would one of our friends have an insight into this?

Would you share some references? I want to analyze a piece of talk un my data where swearing occurs (an equivalent of the f-word in Italian in an institutional interaction) but am struggling to find references (I basically don't know where/what to look for)
