Yes, I'm being rhetorical. Surely you understand what I'm trying to
say and that "90%" is not intended to be interpreted literally.

Just in case, I'll recap without using statistics for rhetorical
purposes: My point is about quick wins. We can attack a large portion
(that may or may not be exactly 90%) of the problem by offering
readers the opportunity to hide a small number of categories that
people commonly don't want to see.
