True.  But too much lenient statistics lead to "damn  lies".

A  nicer  model  for  the  Internet  would  involve  pinging
everything. There were some talks last year about submitting
our  Web  pages directly to search engines (notably  Google)
rather  than publish them independently. it saves traffic and
makes  updates quicker. This make you want to take a shower.
