Agile is pure. I don't know any one that does pure agile.
Pick the bits that suit your team and leave the rest behind.
I agree with applying agile in a manner that suits you. I find daily scrum meetings the most useful so everyone is up to date with each other. Aside from that I prefer a project management approach i.e.(changeable) milestones and strict use of e.g. jira to plan (again in a changeable way).

My suggestion is that people read the original manifesto and apply it in a
manner that best suits themselves and their organisation.
Anyone who's seen my Diabolical Developer and Modern Software Development
Anti-Pattern (with Ben) rants to know my opinions on this particular
subject, yes Scrum is a pyramid scheme ;-).
