Although the PLUR ideal appeared to be widely known among mature/longtime ravers and relative neophytes, there were disagreements and tensions surrounding the application of these perspectives.
Although the meanings that ravers gave to these various looks (their own and others) usually embodied or included references to 'openness, acceptance, and uninhibited self-expression', more extreme identities/styles in the scene, particularly the "candy raver identity/style (a radical version of the "return to childhood" look), created some tensions among those who viewed these styles as short-term strategies to get attention, not authentic representations of a commitment to PLUR and the rave movement.
The "sporty" style was often considered to be a dancing-style, while the neo-hippie look (tie-dye shirts) embodied the PLUR philosophy.
For example, the promotion of the PLUR philosophy and emphasis on 'breaking down communication barriers' were considered crucial 'corrections' to the violence and alienation that (in their view) represent the status quo.
Perhaps the PLUR philosophy, from this perspective, could be considered at least a partial reflection of the more 'comfortable' realities that are associated with economically and culturally privileged backgrounds/lifestyles.
Their view of technology was, on one hand, an extension of the PLUR "breaking down barriers" position, and on the other, was about "progression, experimentation, and pleasure.
