The response rate was only 26 in number (down from the usual 40 or so per poll).
I attribute this to the number of mesh surveys out, and the fact that the question, in retrospect, was a bit confusing. I should not have added the "mesh or non-mesh enabled viewer" qualifier, since every viewer counts:
The Question: Please take this survey if you have used a mesh or non-mesh enabled viewer in Second Life in September 2011. How do you feel mesh has impacted your second life experience?
Improved it a great deal
Improved it somewhat
Made no impact
Has caused some problems
Has made it a living hell
I am not sure / other
I am a bit surprised that only 18% of respondents feel that mesh has improved their Second Life experience, it is much higher in other polls.
I will have another question next week -- I am heading off to northern Virginia. for a family reunion this weekend.
