"The Serge Asylum is a place for due South Fraser/Kowalski fans interested in on topic discussion and Due South slash fanfic."Like many Due South mailing lists at the time, the list was a participant in the Ray Wars, coming down firmly on the Ray Kowalski side. From the FAQ:
No Vecchiosmut. Period. Dot it, file it, stick it in a box marked 'Done.' You can talk about him, just post stories about him having sex somewhere else. Get over it.
Approximate membership at the height of activity: 200.
Changes and Moves
In 2001, the list changed its name to dS_Asylum.
In 2003 the mailing list left yahoogroups and moved to another mailing list platform, calling itself "Asylum at Easy-List." The mailing list ceased operation after the move.
From an Early Introduction at Easy-List
This is the replacement list for SergeAsylum/dS_Asylum at YahooGroups.
Welcome to the asylum. The inmates are indeed running it; however, they know the difference between a hawk and a handsaw, the two Rays, and on and off topic discussion. This is a Fraser/Kowalski slash list; it has a narrow focus and is not trying to be all lists for all fans. Fiction that can be posted here is limited to F/K or PG/CKR role/role pairings. There will be frank and open discussion of m/m sexual practices and homosexuality. Rational debate about Benton Fraser, Ray Kowalski, Fraser and Kowalski, Due South, and technical/literary questions pertaining to literary endeavours is welcomed, indeed, encouraged; off topic discussion will be tolerated for a maximum of two messages, including news pertaining to Paul Gross or Callum Keith Rennie; flaming will not be tolerated but honest idea-based disagreement will. There will be no fic archive - due South slash fanfic can be found at due Slash. Welcome. Have fun.AuKestrel, Kelingtyn, and Rowan
