Do they still exist/have activity? The beginning of the article is present tense, but then the article switches into past, so it sounds like they aren't around anymore. --Ratcreature 20:20, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure, so I was probably unconsciously hedging a little, with the definition in present tense and then the origins/history in past tense. --Arduinna 21:23, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
So I googled for EBs on LJ comms to see whether they made the shift from MLs to LJ (personally I used to hear from them in ML fandom in the late 90s, but nothing recently), and there are some hits for communities using that designation, and there's activity on them in the 2007 and 2008, so I'd say they still exist at least. I can't say how their popularity compares though.--Ratcreature 22:17, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

The DDEB is definitely still around

I'm a member of the original Brigade, founded in late 1993. We started with 40 or 50 people in a closed mailing list and today continue our conversation with about 25 active members. We email one another daily; it is basically an online kaffeklatsch. We rarely discuss David any more, unless it's his birthday or he's making headlines. The conversation is mostly personal, much as any group of old friends would indulge in.

When we were first organized, the World Wide Web was not in wide acceptance, so there were no forums, chatrooms, LJ accounts, etc. We put up a David Duchovny FAQ, and later a DDEB FAQ. Nowadays, there is so much information on DD on the web, we took all that down. We don't seek publicity, although it would be nice if people would not assume that "DDEB" is some kind of generic term for DD fans.

I don't know if DDEB2 and DDEB3 are still around.
