Huh?  I'd rate such (genuine survey) phone calls as more pleasant to
deal with than any of your recent emails.

I've gotten phone calls from telemarketers, and I've gotten phone calls
from survey folks.  The survey folks are incomparably more polite.

On the other hand, I've got a decent sized buffer (voice mail) on my
phone and don't feel compelled to answer it if I'm in the middle of
something else (which is most of the time).
