And if so, how?

Because I sometimes crowdsource ideas and opinions here, I occasionally find myself wanting to bring up Groupthink in real life conversations. "Oh, I don't think that's a good idea. I asked my.... friends........"


With close friends I don't mind them knowing that I comment on an internet forum, but with most people I'd really rather they didn't know (mostly because I've dropped enough personal information that if someone visited Groupthink knowing that I comment here, they could probably figure out my identity pretty quick).

Is this something you guise encounter? How do you handle your GT obsession with your flesh-friends?
