The web is not as pornographic as originally thought…

If you’ve been surfing the news sites, you’ll most likely have come across an article that reads “Government study: Internet 1 percent porn“. It turns out that out of all the sites indexed by Microsoft and search-engine giant Google, only 1% has been deemed sexually explicit. So out of all the spam e-mails you get asking you to sign up for their porn movies, they’re only directing you to only 1% of all the billions and billions of websites out there.
