I find 3x as a standard is a good start, adding 2c for every posted blind / limper. If someone is a calling station and I've got a hand strong enough for them to call me with then I want them to call and get max value out of them, or I can just out play them post flop!
If anyone raised 8x BB on a 2NL table I was on, then I'd be folding everything but KK & AA, and I think a lot of others would too, however donkish they are.
I've only played 15k hands, and maybe it's just the site that you play at, but still...
