    In the circles I move in, everybody has an email address, so the stats seemed rather low. But on reflection, there can’t be many children under, say, 7 with email addresses, nor those aged over 80. If those two groups and those who are seriously unwell are taken out of the count, you end up with a figure which will be far closer to 100%.

    wow, those are some crazy statistics, i had no idea that only richer people tended to have emails, it makes sense about the age, but some of those are shocking. thanks for the info.
