On this board, yes. Most times, no. Especially when everybody with whom I do business asks me (or their phone system asks me) if I will take a survey after the phone call. That answer is always no. If anyone calls me unsolicited and asks if I will participate in a survey, I hang up.
I would NEVER respond to a poll - or post on a thread about polls ... oh yeah, I ALWAYS lie!
I would respond to more polls if there was money in it for me.
I do. If I get a call asking me to participate in a poll, I always do if I've got the time.
I have fun trying to suss out who's behind it by the way the questions are phrased. I once answered a poll about vaping, and the questions were so leading I could tell it was some anti-vape outfit who paid for it.
When I bought a new car in 2016 I informed the salesgoober that I don't respond to polls, so please don't ask me to do so. He informed me his commission percentage is keyed on how many gold stars he gets from customer feedback.
I politely asked him if his goal was to sell cars or collect stars; my positive feedback will be the purchase of the vehicle: if I spend my money here at this dealership, it means you treated me better than any other dealership. Out of four dealers, one rose above the others on the special order Challenger, and I wrote the check.
I still received requests for feedback via email and in the mail, and they both went into the trash.
Somebody isn't being forthright... I'm thinking the "no's" have it.
Often but not always here on TDPRI.
Any other poll or questionnaire ?....rarely unless I'm upset about disservice, or particularly pleased with good service. If it's a political poll, I will say really outrageous and obnoxious things to do what I can to "throw off" the results.
I personally believe many (if not most) people lie to pollsters.....just to give the answers they "think" they should be giving.....or if "face to face", to make the pollster like them. This is why most political polls can be misleading......people SAY one thing, yet VOTE another.
If data is capital then you have to pay me for it
I forgot to vote! Went and did that.
No one does not know who one is talking to ... or why .
I respond to polls on this particular forum because like this one, they have little or no value. Which of course makes it my kind of poll.
Looking at the poll results, I see that at this moment 7 people who voted ‘no’ either don’t understand the question, which is unlikely, or simply have a sense of humor, which I can appreciate. Or...are they misrepresenting???.
Is this a trick question?
I've been inundated with requests to participate in polls by organizations supporting candidates running for public office. Answering a poll invariably floods ones inbox or phone with pleas for donations. I don't know how they find me. I have no association with any party and never have. I am what was referred to in my college days as a GDI, g*d dam independent. Back then the moniker referred to those who thought little enough of the Greek system that they didn't participate. I suppose I think as little of parties, which where I live are hard to differentiate from organized crime families.
When someone goes through the Master’s degree torture a mountain of stats and research are sifted. Hopefully learning how to see what the good stuff is and what goes into quality research and statistics.
I approach polls etc. with scientific skepticism.
Useful but not for blind acceptance.
Other lawyers used to have their secretary get me on the phone and then she says "Please hold for Mr. Scaramuzza".
Heck, no. When the trial judges smirk when Scaramuzza walks into the courtroom, no his time is not worth more than mine.
Where am I going with this? Polls take time, and tend to take even more time than you might expect. Even if they're virtuous. Now, the "poll" is usually an effort to solicit a contribution of services or money. The crucial element of trust has been disrupted. Think about it this way: If you don't even answer the phone usually when you can't ID the incoming call, why would you respond to a poll. When all they ever do for you is give you a coupon for a free burger. A burger my puppy wouldn't even eat.
I've never been poll'd, except by a Scientologists cute girl at the mall trying to trick me into her trap. "Hey lady, this isn't a real poll! What gives?"
