Posers are individuals who are perceived as pretending to sympathize and identify with a particular subculture in order to gain social status within it. The heckling of posers makes them either learn how to assimilate, or else makes them leave the social grouping. Heckling can be thought of as a balancing mechanism to allow for social order in social groupings.

Curious Labs' Poser is a computer software that renders 3-D scenes and people by Curious Labs (previously by MetaCreations). This and other 3-D rendering programs have created a subculture of animation professionals, that render their fantasies. The current version is 5.

Poser is able to make animations as well (multiple renders in different camera views or different scenes).
