There are folks across the spectrum, (dare I say the preponderance of the authentic community based on the 5-7% attendee moniker which is worn so proudly) doing their own "historically representative thing" and applying a research based, MMM and PEC approach, combined with one helluva amount of requisite due dillegence and never attend a single EBUFU event.
