So, which two words in your message should we pay attention to? Along the same lines, doesn't Sturgeon's law compel us to conclude that 90% of Sturgeon's Law "is crap"?

Sturgeon's Law applies to EVERYTHING - competence in any field, wage scales, auto design, music...you name it, the good doctor's dictum applies.

That link was really interesting, Monique, thanks.

I don't think I'd go along with the quote about Sturgeon's Law re tech com, tho, unless the product is faulty. However, I missed the original post.
