Yes it is.

The conversation is between you and them.

It's okay to put them on speaker if you tell them or if you are alone.

I voted no, but my opinion is yes.

Yes, and if you make a habit of putting people on speaker without thinking about it- one day it'll bite you in the ass when something you wanted under wraps is projected for others to hear.

Depends on what you're talking about.
If you're by yourself and you have to do something else with your arms while talking to the person that's completely fine.

Yes, it's very rude.

In some cases yeah. If you are by yourself, I don't see the harm as they are still only talking to you.

If you're with a group of people being noisy in the background then def it's rude.

Purely contextual, just like vocal volume IRL.

Also, calls should be banned forever.

This poll is quite silly, but if you ever have to call a 1-800 number and are on speaker phone chances are the CSR will hate your guts.

I usually don't do it in public, but when I'm at home I don't care, I put the speaker on and don't ask for permission.
