Hmm. . .could be a tricky one. For the most part, posers are considered to be people who try to fit in with a certain subculture. The most common ones (subcultures) are goths, punks, skaters, emo etc.
There is also other problems posers present:
1) People who are not trying to be a goth/skater/punk/emo etc. may run the risk of being verbally/physically assaulted by the said stereotype, because they believe that the person is a 'poser', and must therefore be eliminated.
2) It becomes difficult to tell the posers and the 'real thing' apart.
3) How do you define a poser? Someone who likes to wear black clothes and listen to more mainstream music than *and everyone shall die drowning in my river of tears slit blood autumn death hearbreak*? Is anyone who likes to skate but is not crazy about it a poser?
1) I was in town today, and a crowd of 'non poser goths' started yelling that I was a poser, simply because I was wearing a black top. They did not take into account the fact that i had a bag which clearly displayed the words 'I Love Kelly Clarkson and Shayne Wark 4 Eva' in btight pink.

2) I saw two skaters today, and my friend told me one of them was a poser. I could not figure out which one it was, until the one on the left came up to me and said 'Yeah? You startin'? You ****ing chav, you ****ing poser'. I could soon make up my mind.

3) I decided to listen to a band that more than 5 people have heard of, and my goth older brother called me a poser and threw me down the stairs.
