    I tend to avoid talking about things I am not interested in.

    I don't talk about it much (its my dirty little secret), most people aren't interested and I'd probably get laughed at (or just no longer taken seriously, people still think its a kids thing), also it doesn't help that the people who I do know that like it, are really otakuish, and although I like anime and manga, I don't really care for it THAT much (certainly not enough that I want to constantly talk about it for hours like an eight year old on speed).

    ST: Yeah. My parents know I go on a manga forum, and I talk to my friend about it decently often - mostly about occasionally funny moments. She's involved with other forums so it's sort of a "what funny thing happened"/"zomg! post count!"/etc. kind of thing. I don't really discuss people by username, or specific, embarrassing events, though.

    Anime/Manga: People know I like it, since most of my friends do and the ones that don't used to (well, they watched Doraemon... =P). I don't go around making a big deal about it, since I don't have a major passion for (most of) it, but it leads to interesting conversations at times, especially when I'm talking to people who still like it.

    J-pop: If anyone in my school DOESN'T know about this by now...

    Personally, I go through spurts. Months of not really caring about anime and manga, then reading it for a few weeks, rinse, repeat.

    I actually told my instructor about ST.......in a research paper, I took this cyberspace and society class for my university req, and she wanted us to cover a social networking website in 6-8 pages, since I do not have Myspace or really make use of those kind of website, I asked her if I can cover internet forum instead and she said it's fine.

    I told her everything, the manga download, the forum game, the family tree, the stalking, how some of the mods are annoyed with people speaking very bad English, well everything.

    The response was good. Besides of some grammatical errors, I still got 3.5.

    Other than that, I never share anything except with my friend who recommended me this site but never involved in the forum discussion.

    People as in strangers or casual acquaintances? No. It would be too much like someone at work suddenly starting a discussion during lunch break on the womens romance novels they've read and collected. Would be ok if they had some reason to believe that the people they were speaking to might share a similar interest in that, but otherwise the situation could be uncomfortable and the conversation can quickly fall flat.

    ST irl: umm...kinda? The only thing i've talked about is how we played mafia on the interwebs...ahahah. =D

    manga/anime: yeah, i guess wherever i go i tend to meet a good amount of ppl who like it. Though in all honesty the only thing i've really kept up with nowadays is AG.

    Speaking of post count, you're only 6 away from 10,000...

    as for Anime/Manga: I usually wait for it to randomly pop up before I talk about it.
