Well several people here on the list feel that way, but is that shared by
everyone in the sca? Generally the ppl on computer lists tend not to be the
"partiers" for whom period is less important.

Sure does. Now i wonder sometimes about whether or not the people who come
to the funny clothese parties in the woods actually want more authenticity.
I certainly am quite happy with having just that sometimes (though there
are times i want more). Is it fair for us to make THEIR sca more like we

Wouldn't it be interesting if at the next couple of events they had a survey
that asked if people wanted more or less periodness?
