Incompetent Polling
I don't mind answering an occasional telephone poll. During political season, I actually enjoy doing them as it gives me a glimpse into what the campaigns are trying to understand about the voters. What I do mind very much is getting called by a group doing marketing research when there is so much background noise from the other pollsters that I can't hear their questions clearly and when their computers aren't working, causing the call to take up more time because the pollster can't enter the new data.

I had one a month or so back, but they didn't deserve the title "research." It was a push-pull. One hospital was trying to get me to oppose the construction of another.

This survey was asking all sorts of questions about taking surveys, so it didn't seem like a push poll, but it was annoying. I'm ignored at least four return calls from them so far.
