one percent

I was gratified to read this endorsement from anonreader:
I just wish that 1% of the interent community understood this topic as well as you did. Thankyou!
(Not sure if he is referring to my understanding of toy pianos or ballistics)

Congratulations! That is good news. However I'm a bit perturbed by the notion of an 'Interent community'. Is there something we should know?

I thought blogging was more interant, but maybe I mix with the wrong percentage.

A One Percenter or 1%'er' is a full member (known as "fully-patched") of an outlaw motorcycle club.

The term comes from a famous statement made by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) that 99% of motorcyclists and clubs are law-abiding citizens and only 1% are not.

Those who claim to be 1%'ers are proud to be a part of that group. The one percenter term and accompanying patch are worn as a badge of honor by so-called outlaw bikers, and is also meant to instill respect and fear from regular motorcyclists, and the general community.

Members of motorcycle gangs such as Hells Angels, Outlaws, Pagans, and the Bandidos have members that wear the rhombus-shaped patch with "1%" or "1%'er" inside, usually in their gang's colors, on their vests or motorcycle leathers.
