    Revisiting

    Hey guys, how's it going. I was active in the pickup community from 2006-2008 but left after it seemed to become over-saturated with wannabe cult leaders and copycat programs. Plus, I was getting laid and having relationships and that area of my life seemed to be finally "handled".

    Now it's close to a decade later. I've been studying cults, fringe religions movements and pseudo-sciences, Scientology being one example. This reminded me of my time in the pickup community, and the various people who inhabit it.

    This coincided with Neil Strauss toting his new book, "The Truth" and Mystery's very public social media breakdown. I took it as a sign. I uncovered my old pickup folder and dove into the material with an older brain. Great stuff, still.

    Then I read the Game again. I liked it, and different things clicked with me this time around. But then I did some digging. Seemed Strauss was in the game a lot longer than he claimed to be. So what's the deal, is Neil Strauss just a huge liar? Shame.

    Well anyway, I wanted to drop in on the community again and see what was happening. This forum in particular was very helpful to me in my coming-of-age years. I'm interested in learning what people are teaching now. What's the "tech"? What's the general mindset? What's the culture like in 2016?

    Guys putting emphasis on doing "natural game" not realizing that there's a period of contrived game before you reach that point.

    Not a fan of Neil Strauss but being in the game long before, doesn't make him a liar.
    Have you ever heard of an actor being an 'over night success', its the same thing, it took them years before they were an overnight success.
    Even 'Mystery' cops a lot of crap from everyone, but he was the one who set this whole thing off
    and that's the only thing I remember about him.
