Also, they're rare in my area, so I have pretty low exposure. lol I don't go where they are on the net.
This is so key. I don't waste my time going places that will irritate me online and scream out, hey I am a trad witch, listen to me. And then get pissed when they go off on the harm none line.
Now in person in small doses, I will talk with new agers about herbs and stones etc. I do bristle a little when they go on about harm none even when its not been brought up. But smile and nod and get back to other more interesting areas of conversation that won't draw that up. Like local folklore, local spirits, etc. Things that are going to help me as a traditional and will interest them too. And like I said, this has led to me meeting people from traditional witchcraft in my area, it just took a long time and a lot of meeting people.
If I already had a family trad this might not be neccessary at all. But the networking aspect is an important consideration in person. Online? Not so much, I can come right here and avoid most of that new agey stuff.
