It's a question of timing? We remember:

Someone I know wrote back in the last century:
In _ L'invention intellectuelle _ Judith Schlanger suggests that noise,
the sheer mass of popularisation which the French call "vulgarisation"
contributes to significant breakthroughs. Each rearticulation of current
knowledge is a displacing repetition and affects however slightly the
paths open and opening to thinkers.

Google is watching who and where "somewhere someone wrote" :-}

BTW: some uncritical thinker could be amused seeing the long way from "which
the French call 'vulgarisation'" (1996, Sept) to "the teeming vulagrity of
domains" (2006,Aug). But Google voting suggests a quite common error:
about 4,5
Mio. hits for "vulgarity" against only 767 hits seaching for "vulagrity").
