Talk:History of Slash Fandom

Interesting quote about one zine fan's perspective of slash as "underground" phenomenon:

When Starsky/Hutch slash came into the picture things became much more secretive and exclusive. Certain persons turned in S/H material to TPTB, and there were negative consequences. That’s when slash truly went underground and I’m sure that’s when the mentoring process began and came into its own. And that, along with George Lucas’ edicts, was also the beginning of the fannish paranoia of being ‘outed’. (Individual people, of course, have always had specific individual reasons for privacy.)[1]

Could someone explain why in the page's history section a lot of the previous edits are crossed out? Thanks, --KTJ (talk) 19:32, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

I think it was a name/identity revision/protection thing? Yeah?--MPH (talk) 20:26, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
