How often do you lie on polls?

Do you ever tell any odd little lies in response to a poll? Just trying to skew the results? What?!?

I always lie about my income on those customer satisfaction polls so they don't think I'm going to spend a lot of money on their spam ads.

Poles lie, but so do Germans.

Re: How often do you lie on polls?

I recall once. The poll had a selection like this one and my opinion was not represented in the choices. I wanted to see the results without voting but you couldn't see the tally unless you voted. I just chose one of the selections.

Re: How often do you lie on polls?

Most times I answer truthfully. When I don't it's usually because I don't fit into any of the categories well enough to be truthful. If that makes sense...

I choose the category or answer closest to what I am, but since I'm not necessarily 100%, I call that a fudge/fib.
