voluntold

verb; blending and clipping
Used to indicate action caused by subtle or obvious pressure from a person in power to a subordinate. The word is used to indicate doing something ostensibly voluntary under pressure of others who hold various forms of power over you. This specific situation is common among those that use the word but uncommon otherwise, so the word was created to describe it.
 
I wish I could say I wanted to be here, but in reality, I was voluntold to do this.
Etymology : voluntold. Clipping and blending of the english words volunteer + told.
