I think the way the question is phrased is fair and respectful, so I'm happy to help out.
As I have 'proven' on this forum, there is far worse advice than the pick up community.
That said, I would name two guys who've taken the train past the last station.
1) Adam Lyons. Almost anything pick-uppy from this guy is just weird. He once said that the only time he'll go clubbing with a guy or at all is going with no less than five girls. Considering that the whole point of being a pick up artist is the ability to do it yourself, getting five girls to do it for you seems rather unfulfilling. Moreover, isn't the point of being a pick up artist to get five girls in the first place?
He also changes his stance in relation to whatever type of talk he's attending.
2) Mehow. I'm glad I came across this guy but some of his stuff is a little out there. His general plan is to emotionally confuse the women he interacts with so she loses her logical state of being. His execution lies in using techniques like texting a girl random things such as 'I like lemons'. Apparently one time he did this, the girl showed up to his house with a lemon basket. Some truth to his intent in my view but his execution is a little bit obvious and a bit weird. You'd probably have to be completely nuts to pull it off.
All other forms of pick up artistry is valid and wonderful.
