Then again, 57% of all statistics are simply pulled out of someone's hat, so there.

What's your objection, here, baylink? Those figures certainly seem accurate to within a guesstimate I would make. Truthfully, there ARE a lot of people who will say this. It doesn't mean that they're even right about themselves -- only that the obstacles are presently too high (must get internet account, must get computer, must get electricity), and if some of those were removed, they might suddenly find as so many others do that they abruptly can't live without it.

"must get electricity".

I like that.

My complaint is merely with the light in which it's cast. OTOH, being one of those "The Internet is Full: Go HOME" people, myself, I suppose I shouldn't realy bitch, should I?
