Is Calling Oneself a Salafi is a Blameworthy ?Tazkiyah? of Oneself

And this doubt has been answered by our Mashaayikh: Allaamah, ?Abdul-?Azeez Ibn Baz ? the [former] mufti of Saudi Arabia was asked: What do you say about the one who calls himself ?Salafi? or ?Athari?? Is this is a tazkiyah (purification) of his own self? So he replied ? may Allaah have mercy upon him ? ?When he is being truthful [in his claim] that he is Salafi or Athari then there is not harm in that, [this is] similar to what the Salaf used to say, ?So and so is a Salafi?, ?So and so is Athari?. This is a tazkiyah (commendation) which is necessary, a tazkiyah that is obligatory.? (Cassette: Haqq ul-Muslim 16/1/1413 Ta?if)

Shaikh Salih al-Fawzan was asked ?Is the one who gives himself the title of ?as-Salafi? considered to have set up a ?hizb???. To which he replied,  ?There is no harm in labelling oneself with Salafiyyah when it is in truth. However, if it is merely a claim then it is not permissible to label oneself with Salafiyyah, whilst one is upon a manhaj other than that of the Salaf.? (Al-Ajwibah al-Mufidah p.16)

As salaamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatu
I was asked the following question by a sister in Riyadh.  The question is valid since there are many people here who claim to be Salafee and are not Salafee. We visited SalafiPublicatins, but the terms were either too advanced or strange for the sister. So, I pose this question to those who know more than I, praying for an answer in layman terms.  How do we know that a person is Salafee?
