I am not going to try and quantify whatever%, but can contribute a couple of observations I have noted over my involvement of the life of Chockstone.

Regardless of the issues that Chockstone reflects from time to time, the readership is actually much larger than the postings to it. This is direct from non-login hits, and also indirect by the word of mouth generated amongst those who do read Chocky.

Additionally just because many registered User-ID's don't post, doesn't mean they are not influenced by what they read here.
Personally, when I read a contribution from a 'seldom-posts' identity, I take a greater interest in what they are saying, because if an issue gets to them enough to want to post about it, then that means it is important to them at least, and by default perhaps more greatly represents the 'silent majority'. The vocal regulars by comparison, are pretty well known for their views and flavour so sometimes miss out on the impact that they could have...

Regarding media; I have noticed Rock Mag picks up on things from time to time on this site and rehashes them down the line, which further gets the issues 'out there'.

What is with % anyway? The politicians all hang off every poll no matter how minor (regardless of their denials about it), because they know that the sentiments expressed occur for a reason that they try to identify with or influence as the case may be!
