Breakfast Topic: Playing WoW in public


Anadjet of the Eonar realm posted a topic on the forums recently that got me thinking. The topic was on whether or not players found it weird to game in public. The story goes that down at the local pub she encountered several random strangers that had a love of WoW in common, and conversations ensued when she pulled out her laptop to log in to the game.

Yes, the game is popular, but it's not often that we run across players, and I wouldn't expect to do so in a bar. But it's an interesting question nonetheless. Would you ever just log in to WoW in public, irregardless of the weird looks others might give you? Or is the game more of a private world you prefer to dive in to at home? Is it just too plain geeky to do with others watching?
