Heh heh.  Actually, I've heard several people would just as soon treat
them like the period equivalents would be treated -- possibly burning
at the stake, exorcism, that sort of stuff. ;-)

It came up on a list (was it here?) some months ago, and one of the
things that was discussed was that, at least with the 'elves,' I'd have
no problem with people acting as such at events, so long as they did so
_by the ways period accounts related them_.  Most of the stories of the
fey and such from period show that in public, (when on those rare
occasions where they actually deemed themselves to been seen by the
public) they took great pains to not draw attention to themselves as
faerie folk.  Pointy ears in pubclic was definately right out, it
seems. ;-)
