Just FYI:
Sturgeon had originally deemed Sturgeon's Law to mean that "nothing is always absolutely so" in the story "The Claustrophile" in a 1956 issue of Galaxy. The second adage, variously rendered as "ninety percent of everything is crud" or "ninety percent of everything is crap", was originally known as "Sturgeon's Revelation", formulated as such in his book review column for Venture in 1957. However, almost all modern uses of the term Sturgeon's Law actually refer to the second, including the definition listed in the Oxford English Dictionary.

I stand corrected. Thanks, Ed.
