I have no problem telling people about eHell.

I often am reading it at the pub after work and it's started many a conversation with my friends when I find an interesting thread and ask their opinions.  ;D

I'm not worried about it, either.  DH knows all about it, and I'll share some of the stories with him (typically the ones that either trouble me or where I think posters are being way *way* off).  I don't tell other people directly about this site (nor about any other sites I usually visit for information) but were someone to discover the forum and confront me, I'd have no issue with saying, "Well, as a matter of fact..." because it's typically *their* bad behavior I'm writing about.  Unless they want to open that can of worms, it actually would be in their best interest not to ask me anything.  I, as a rule, am not non-confrontational, but my general preference is to be left alone and not messed with because I really don't want to have to bring out my combative side (it's tiring).

My mother's very fond of "not my circus, not my monkeys" now. ;D

I introduced the saying to my local quilters group. They reckon half of Braidwood will end up using it.

Fairly recently, I posted a thread on behalf of my BFF, to ask about a situation she was.facing regarding her in-laws. However, she doesn't go online much, except to pay bills and research medical conditions, so she's not really interested in reading here or becoming a member.

I explained "jerk eating crackers" to my mom, and she loves that. "Hill to die on" has become a regular part of my vernacular.    ;)

I've often brought up things I learned here with friends, as a shortcut I talk about the anglophone forum I'm on.
My ex knew fully well what forum it was, I've often wondered if he ever looked me/my posts up, it wouldn't be hard to find me, even without knowing my username.
I never posted things I would be bothered by him finding, even more now that he's an ex.

Only DH knows bc sometimes when he asks what I'm doing I'll say,"I'm etiquette-helling."
Other times I just mention that I read t ona forum somewhere.

I have mentioned the site to other people, but just in passing.  I don't encourage them to come here, even though this is not a place where I discuss my family issues.  My husband knows I come here and I discuss some threads of interest with him, or threaten to report some lousy driver or clerk to e Hell.

I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

Sometimes I'll mention that there's this "etiquette board" I visit online, but no real details. This is my space that I don't want to share. :)
