Opening a 4-Card Major in 3rd/4th seat?

Do you ever do this?  Specifically, I am referring to a bid of 1M in 3rd or 4th seat despite only holding (exactly) four cards in the bid major.

Further, under what sorts of conditions is it a good/bad idea?  

I searched BW for a discussion on this but am not finding much of anything.

I also have included a survey on how frequently players here open in 3rd or 4th seat by bidding 1M despite only holding four cards in the suit.

Curious to hear thoughts on this.

Note that the menu of answers I have listed are possible responses to the following prompt: "How often would you say you open 1M in 3rd/4th seat despite holding on four cards in the bid major suit?" 

Absolutely never
Very rarely, maybe a couple of times a year at most
Not often, but once in awhile, more than a couple of times a year
Somewhat often; it certainly isn’t something that is unusual for me to do
Very frequently; whenever it seems to me like a feasible option
