It's pretty accurate - the ones that are typically reading this blog (and especially The Queue), or reading anything WoW-related are probably hardcore, or at least not casual gamers. Most of us probably have at least 1 level 85 character, and maybe a few alts as well. The majority of the players in WoW though aren't of the hardcore nature, I'd imagine (nobody has the stats, but it's probably a safe assumption with over 10 million accounts), and so the vast majority of people probably spend a lot of gold on the AH, crafting mats, etc, and getting above that 1000g cap is probably pretty difficult. Back when I first started in Classic, even having 1g to your name pre-60 was a chore if you didnt' have a high level alt and didn't play the AH. It's inflated a lot since, but the same ideas still hold true that it's harder to make gold without max-level characters and a decent knowledge of the game's economy.
