Most of what is seen online where people are claiming to be “slayers” or “vampire hunters” are people either roleplaying or trying to sound “cool” to other people.
There may be people who are more serious, however they don't usually post on the various message boards. There's always the possibility of someone who actually IS a vampire hunter, rather than just bluffing, just as there are serial killers.
It always pays to be discrete about being a real vampire; avoiding potential “hunters” is just one of the many reasons.
