I seem to always have to do it, otherwise it tears.

Yes because I'd rather have 60 fps and no screen tearing.

Only if there is tearing and no option to limit the framerate. V-sync causes so much input lag it's almost unbearable in some games, a much better option is to just limit your framerate, but for some odd reason most games don't include this option.

I only enable v-sync when the tearing is really bad.

Pretty much this... if the tearing is very minor I ignore it... if it's terrible, I enable it (or in some cases I can just change the max_fps value to minimize tearing)

Online FPS - no

Everything else - yes, unless the input lag is atrocious.

Only time I enable it is if I'm playing an older game which I get hundreds of wasted frames per second.

Some games the tearing is minimal enough that I only notice when I'm not focused on the action.

Yep. Screen tearing usually makes me feel sick after a while.
