80% of the blogosphere offers "potentially offensive content," according to a ScanDefender report. In the best Marty Rimm tradition, the majority of the medium is seen as threatening.
What is offensive? ScanDefender defines this as "rang[ing] from adult language to pornographic images". Sadly, the rest of the study focuses entirely on malware, without developing the content angle further.

Sturgeon's law says that 90% of everything is crap. ScanDefender, in contrast, claims that 80% of the blogosphere is talking crap. Or using words like "crap." Or something.
