It's been that way for a long long time (and that site has been around for a long time). They even use the ASA nickname. If Alpha Sigma Alpha wanted to sue them, it would have happened by now. Why they haven't reaffiliated, is for someone more knowledgeable than me to answer.
It is all 33girl's fault. ~DrPhil
