It's somewhat of a subjective term, but there's been some interesting discussion on the topic:

money quote:

Either way, you're on this site, so you're either a nerd, dork, gamer, shut-in, tech-head; an otaku.

The majority of them have single-handedly crafted their own definitions of "otaku" as it applies to themselves. And then go around ridiculing/shunning others who are not within their defined basis.

Basically it is someone who is classified as being an anime nerd.
