Is it true that in the U.S. you cannot attend a DC if you don't have a badge? Do the require bag searches now in U.S.?
So tired of reading random numbers or quasi "facts" without annual metrics and sources. I agree it would be difficult to gage from past experience who was who at these events. I know of some DF'd who attended for very reason to see their families and re-establish some contact or to ease tension.
This will be my 3rd summer free of DC in over 20 years.
