    Occasional I will find someone in real life who also uses this forum, and then we have a type of sacred bond knowing that our secret must be kept.

    I was hunched over my tablet the other day at home, my Mum says "what are you up to?" and I said, oh, it's just TSR, and she said "is that a medical condition? Sounds bad."
    I presume you replied with the correct answer - "Yes, it is, and I haven't found a cure yet..." :erm:

    As for me - I've mentioned it to friends who might be able to make use of it, and I do have four or five friends/acquaintances on here, so they obviously know I spend far too much of my life on here - but to my friends at home? No, the conversational arc is never one conducive to a mention of TSR...

    A couple of my friends know I use it (I tell them about amusing threads I occasionally find), but I don't really use it that much.

    I do use other forums quite a lot, but I don't think I would go around telling everyone that I use them!

    I don't tell people my usernames, but it isn't that hard to figure out who I am if you really wanted to stalk!

    Of course not! It's like social suicide, right? At least it would be, if I had a social life in the first place.

    If people ask then I am honest, but otherwise no. I don't have "TSR 2K13" written on my shirt.
    The main appeal of TSR is to be able to ask questions regarding student-related topics, and get some sensible answers, while staying anonymous. If my friends knew I use TSR a lot, then the anonymity is reduced.

    I think almost everyone at my college uses it, it is really useful for unofficial mark schemes etc...

    My other half knows I use it but only cause he always asks what I'm reading on my phone all the time haha.
    Its never really came up so no one else really knows.
    I don't know anyone else that uses it either.
