How can you tell if someone's 'Agile' is 'pure'? If you can define an Agile purity assessment, then I'm sure I can find some gullible organisations to sell it to; sounds like a business plan! Want to make some money?

Pick the bits that suit your team and leave the rest behind

Sometimes this is reasonable. Sometimes it isn't - Ken Schwaber's rant on "Scrum-but" is a good case in point. The way that a professional can tell the difference is only through experience, context and the exercise of critical faculties.
