The IT Skeptic introduced the concept of Crap Factoids. Crap Factoids are pure bull-excrement that almost sound like a fact, and will be presented so often that everyone will think it true. The worst perpetrators of Crap Factoids are analysts (closely followed by vendors and consulting firms). Crap factoids often originate from rubbish "research" or "surveys" which are fun to ridicule... so we do.
A list of all Crap Factoids is here
