Then just check. No point raising if there are several people have shown interest and you know you're likely to get called.

I'll take the latter every time.
We're talking about posting the BB before it actually gets to you. ie you sit at a table in what is now the CO position, and in order to play, you need to either post the BB now, or wait until the BB reaches us.
EDIT: nevermind, must have read the original post wrong.
In the BB with people limping into you while holding trash, just check. You're inevitably going to lose a lot in the long run because the majority of the time, you're missing the flop.
