Poll Results: What Would You Do in the Wrath Beta?

My blog's first poll asked the question:
"What would you do if you got into the Wrath Beta?" (introduced in this post)

Nineteen people responded, and the results were:
3 votes (15%) - Level an existing character as far as possible
7 votes (36%) - Roll a Death Knight
9 votes (47%) - Save most of the content for launch

It's intriguing that the poll split nearly straight down the middle between saving content and diving right in. Obviously, this wasn't a multi-question survey, but I would have been fascinated to delve more into the why's of such a marked split. Did people feel too busy to both work on current content and test new material? Were people who currently have more alts more willing to spend the time testing a character that will go away when the expansion launches? Are players who are more concerned with making progress quickly when the game launches more likely to want to learn as much as possible up front?

I wasn't sure what to expect going into it, but I hadn't expected things to be that even, and I can't help but wonder if the numbers are trying to tell us something.
