The list reached its peak around 2001, but is still active as a small group of friends.
The term Fuh-Q Fest originated with this group.
The name "Fuh-Q" was originally the title of a TSU written by JA Chapman and Olivia Monteith. This title was later used as the name of a private Yahoo group started by several TSU writers and co-modded by JA Chapman and Charlene Vickers, who wanted to be able to discuss anything and everything considered off-topic on ASCEM and that had a more free-flowing vibe.
The name Fuh-Q is pronounced 'Fuck You', as the joke was "If you don't like what we're talking about, Fuh-Q." It was spelled as such because Yahoo! didn't accept groups with "Fuck" in the title.
kira-nerys was a founding member of Fuh-Q and it was there that she first was inspired to start the Fuh-Q Fests which have now extended well beyond the Star Trek fandom but the original Fuh-Q Fest authors and collaborators began with this small group forever linking the fests with both ASCEML and TSU as well as Fuh-Q.
