    If you mark this stack of dissertations for me I'll provide definitions.

    You're most welcome. My money is also on the eclectics, but my vote went to the purists.

    I wouldn't have labeled any of the listed "eclectics" as eclectic. LK and Mr. Claymore are eclectic.

    I wouldn't have labeled any of the listed "eclectics" as eclectic. LK and Mr. Claymore are eclectic.

    By the same token, I wouldn't have put the Rubinacci twins as Purists...particularly Mattypoo with his striped jacket, pink plaid pants, and chest wig.

    Maybe Manton, Diavalo, Parker and Mildly Consumptive...

    Foof is in his own category: Monotheist. Purist and (a) longwings on the Plaza last and (b) BB OCBDs with two button collar close are definitely unpure, sacriligious, heretical...Fauvist.

    Question is OK- your examples are not.

    I voted for the purists because that's the team you put me on. But I'm not entirely clear what you mean by 'purist' and 'eclectic'.
