"SP is helpful for the game?" Here's all of the research on motivation -- it says the opposite! What purpose does it serve, then? Starter corps are non-competitive. Sov is unchallenged. "Fix sov!" you say? Remove SP.

Idk how this poll works. 30% of people who voted are interested in space mmo's, and out of those 30, 60% tried eve and didn't like it?
Is EvE the only spaceship mmo? The questions suggest so... Also was there "I tried eve and played for x years" option?

This should have been 2 or even 3 separate polls.

Surprisingly low amount of "oh this is too hard for me" quitters. I was expecting 70%, not 30%. Unless it's the poll itself that's messed up and need to multiply it by log 2 raised to minus pi and subtract a banana to get the actual number.

The progression system is both bad and good, from real life iskies perspective for the developer very good, from new player perspective good as well. Even if a ship takes 2 or 3 months to train, it takes a newbro months to learn the game. Better to do it losing t1 ships than t2. For old peeps who "know" how to fly something and don't want to wait there is skill injectors.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.
