I love Asian cooking, and I love Foodnetwork.com, but all their stuff is so....disorganized. Does anyone know of websites or forums or ANYTHING that's a bit more specific to Asian cooking? Preferably stuff you don't have to pay to view...

Um, Asian cooking is a huge topic.  Can you narrow it down a bit?  Indian?  Sri Lankan?  Thai?  Pakistani?  Middle Eastern?  Turkish?  Japanese?  Chinese?

I second allrecipes.com.

or epicurious.com - I searched asian.. http://www.epicurious.com/tools/searchresults?search=asian&x=0&y=0

just search "asian food recipes" on google and you come up with a lot of sites.

I was thinking Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, sort of that general area/cooking influence. Thai and Indian are really good too.

And I checked out recipezaar.com and love it! I really like the way their searches are set up and the fact all the recipes are submitted by readers. Haven't tried the other ones yet, but I will at some point here soon.

Here are some sites and books to get you started. I also enjoy cooking different Asian cuisines, and I find that these have been helpful in getting to know the ingredients and techniques.

Vietnamese:
http://vietworldkitchen.com/

Korean:
http://www.geocities.com/ypmljulia/ and
http://www.xanga.com/koreancooking

Japanese:
http://web-japan.org/kidsweb/cook/index.html and
http://www.bento.com/tf-recp.html
http://blue_moon.typepad.com/

Thai:
http://www.chezpim.com/blogs/ (look for the Thai Recipes tag)

Also, my favorite cookbooks:

Eating Korean: From Barbecue to Kimchi, Recipes from My Home by Cecilia Hae-jin Lee
The Joy of Japanese Cooking by Kuwako Takahashi
Classic Chinese Cuisine by Nina Simonds
Hot, Sour, Salty, Sweet (SE Asian cooking and gorgeous photography) by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid

Ha ha! That's true. Even "Chinese" and "Indian" cooking are incredibly huge topics in and of themselves. Hopefully my links above will help the OP delve in.
