Origin?

From this discussion in f_fa: http://fail-fandomanon.livejournal.com/32016.html?thread=145644304#t145644304

People are saying the origin is further back than what is posited in the article (though I can't tell because the article doesn't actually say explicitly any year). Can't access the reference (friendlocked), but maybe someone can check? -- hl. 03:26, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

This reference? http://groups.google.com/group/alt.fan.blakes-7/msg/969dffdb62993fcf?hl=en ? I can see it. It's a post on alt.fan.blakes-7 from March 20, 2000. I've added the info to the main page -- Liviapenn 09:01, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

I meant the reference in the fanlore article! Fairestcat's post. If I didn't misread, fanlore didn't say any explicit date, so I couldn't tell if the one of 2000 would be older or not... -- hl. 13:07, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh right! I think Fairestcat's post is only cited the second time it's mentioned. I didn't realize it was locked now. But it was from 2005, so 2000 is definitely the earliest internet cite so far. -- Liviapenn 18:17, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
