The breakdown of numbers is interesting. Offensive name calling is in the 23-27% range and stalking/threats/continued harassment, are all consistently in the 5-7% range. (Note that this counts recipients, but given the broadness of the sample, I suspect it reflects about the same percentage as perpetrators.)

There was a recent poll that found 25% of people believed that one-night-stands by people in relationships wasn't cheating.

I suspect if you make a Venn diagram of the name calling and the latter group, it's almost a complete overlap and would supports my theory that about 25% of people are genuine assholes. The smaller stalker group suggests that about 7% of people are sociopaths (and are likely almost entirely a subset of the a**hole group.)
