Halacha - borchu at end of davening
Submitted by Liron H  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Ideally someone should politely and respectfully let the gentleman know that Nusach Ashkenaz in Chutz L'Aretz does not say Borchu after Maariv. However until then, if at least nine people hear him recite Borchu, it is valid and you should answer. If less than nine people hear him, than the Borchu is not valid and those who do hear should not answer. It doesn't make a difference how many people are answering because we say "shomea k'oneh" one who hears is as if he has answered.
