It's more like one owner in a condominium deciding to "test" the fire
alarm without first asking the condo association or letting the other
owners know about it ahead of time.

Or a charitable telemarketer demon-dialing at 5 am and, when you
register your outrage, suggesting that if you don't want to be
bothered you should turn off the ringer before you go to bed.

That's what the polling robocalls say around election time. They're
just conducting research... Would you really want to harm the
democratic process by insisting that they not call you? How hard is it
to just hang up...
