Introduction (about this FAQ and ASF)

1. Where can I find the latest version of this document?

There are 2 official mirror sites for this document (both in ASCII
form and HTML form):

* (not synced up yet)

If you would like to mirror this document, please don't do so
without first contacting one of the authors for permission and
instructions. For convenience, this FAQ will be auto-posted to ASF
in ASCII form on a regular basis.

2. What is ASF?

ASF stands for "" which is an Internet Usenet
newsgroup. ASF is a communication forum for discussing various
fast pick up and seduction techniques. It is a group for
discussing how to pick up women, fast; as opposed to discussing
marriage theory.

3. Where is the Charter for ASF?

Currently, there is no reliable source for retrieving the original
creation request ("control" message) or any alleged Charter which
may have been included in such a request. Therefore, the best
current and future source of information regarding the ASF
newsgroup is this FAQ.

4. Who created ASF?

It doesn't really matter anymore. But, it has been alleged that
the creation of the group (sometime in late 1994) was requested by
a man named Ross Jeffries for the purpose of discussing his
commercial product, Speed Seduction. However, the actual person
who created the group has never been adequately identified. With
current resources, it is not possible to confirm or deny the
specific creator of the group. However, the rest of this document
will help clarify the current position and use of ASF.

5. Is ASF a moderated newsgroup?

No, ASF has no moderators and has never been officially moderated.

6. Is there an official ddministrator for ASF?

No, ASF has no administrators, although some regular posters on
ASF might claim they administer the group or are the "official FAQ
admin". It is best to ignore such claims by those people, and
perhaps ignore those posters entirely.

7. What is the purpose of this FAQ?

The purpose of this document is to help new and current users of
ASF understand what the forum is about, what rules may exist for
becoming involved with discussions, and how to get the most out
of the forum. This FAQ will give the reader a healthy head start
on what ASF is all about.

Purpose of ASF

The ASF newsgroup was allegedly created for at least the partial
purpose of Speed Seduction, a commercial product based on using
NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) in combination with various
verbal seduction techniques, with the additional expectation that
users of the forum could also discuss other, general [fast]
seduction techniques. Since there is no reliable source for an
original group Charter, it's not possible to completely confirm
this. Therefore, the best inferences that can be made about the
core purpose of the group is based on a number of quantifiable

1. The name of the group in the alt. hierarchy.
2. The majority and type of posts appearing on the group in the
past year (prior to the creation of this FAQ).
3. The voiced opinions of a number of regular posters to ASF.

The purpose of ASF is for discussing how to pick up women, fast,
using a number of techniques. These techniques are constantly
being tested and improved upon by the posters of ASF. This
includes ideas on initial contact with women, various ways of
quickly attracting a woman, avoiding pitfalls and common mistakes,
and learning fronm the ideas, successes, and failures of others.
One good example of how this process works takes the form of
regular "Outing/Field Reports" which are descriptions of the steps
people have taken in various situations and how those situations
turned out. The rest of the group can then analyze this material,
critique it, make suggestions, and use it as a model for their
own pick up attempts. It's one big learning process.

Rules for ASF

In order to keep the group sane, useful, and within reasonable
order, it is requested that posters to the group follow the rules
outlined below (as well as the Usenet posting rules their ISP has
mandated upon them). If you do not wish to follow these rules,
please do not post to the group.


No spam of any kind is allowed on ASF. If you have a product to
sell or a commercial web site to advertise, don't try to sell it
or advertise it to the readers of the group. It's perfectly normal
to discuss commercial products within the bounds of a conversation
but blatant, unbiased advertising for any product will not be
tolerated. Posting such material will likely result in a number of
the regular posters reporting you to your ISP's abuse department.


Sometimes conversations can get pretty heated. Sometimes heated
discussions go so far off-topic that many readers of the group
will become extremely agitated. This behavior is called a "group
disruption" and is very damaging to the ongoing usefulness of the
group. If you end up creating 2 or more group disruptons, you may
be asked to stop posting, cool off, or get back on topic by other
people in the group. Ignoring such a request and continuing to
blatantly disrupt the group will likely result in a number of the
regular posters reporting you to your ISP's abuse department. Note
that simply arguing or disagreeing with somebody is not
necessarily a disruption of the group. Doing that, getting
completely off-topic, and annoying people all at the same time is
considered a group disruption.


If you need to flame someone, take it to alt.flame. If you
disagree with someone's opinion, please respect the purpose of the
group and disagree quietly if you can. If a discussion can't help
but get heated, you take the risk of causing a group disruption
(as outlined in item 2.) if the argument is taken too far or goes
too far off-topic.


Crossposting is permitted as long as the groups being crossposted
to are within the topical sphere of ASF and the readers of the
other group(s) do not object to your post. However, posters are
asked to keep their crossposting to a minimum. Lurk on a group
before posting to it so that you get a good dea of what the
acceptable topics are. Your ISP may also have their own
restrictions in place regarding crossposted articles.


ASF is not an appropriate place to post a personal advertisements.
Do not post personal ads in ASF.


If you detect somebody is trolling the group, possibly trying to
cause a subtle disruption, please simply reply that you believe
the person is a troll and end it at that. See item 3. If you feel
the need to respond to a troll, please try to at least be concise
(and witty).
