Bloggers should be kept on a short leash, Americans said in a survey commissioned by hosting company Hostway.
Seventy two percent of the 2,500 people surveyed would back a ban on publishing personal information about celebrities. Another 68 percent supported a similar measure protecting elected officials such as judges and mayors.
Here's the catch however: only 30 percent of the people survey had actually visited a blog. More than one third had never even heard of blogs prior to the survey.
And the survey doesn't bother contradicting itself either: although the American public is all to keen on imposing regulations on bloggers that don't apply to the traditional media, 52 percent of the people surveyed said bloggers should have the same rights as journalists.
I'll just file this one under crappy research. It's getting crowded in there.
