Hi Kingsley.
It is great for people to be able to find a lot of the LOD cloud at your site, but please be careful about your claims concerning the data you have crawled from LOD.
To say "our actual VoiD graph for LOD cloud" is to mislead readers into thinking that it captures more than it does.

As for the % re. FOAF, I think that can be determined from our actual

FOAF is up to 50%.

Not disputing that, just describing what we have in the instance :-)
Remember, we've sponged (crawled and RDFized) data since inception of
our participation in this space.
