Conversation? Eye contact.
Not? No eye contact

Staring I find is more impolite because if you're responding without eye contact, people aren't as unconfterable.

Well...giving eye contact while talking to someone is necessary but...staring at people without a word might not be the polite thing to do...to be honest...
