Melvin's Mauve Mansion of Manlove was a website that highlighted badfic. It was one of many similar sites that sprang up during this time.

A comment at Citizens Against Bad Slash:
More intentional badfic. It seems that this would be hard to pull off and do well, and I don't trust 90% of the slash authors I know to be able to do it, so I haven't read any of the stories here. You can't make me. Stop it. You're not the boss of me. [1]
A comment in 2000:
Melvin's Mauve Mansion of Manlove has a collection of stories by different authors, mostly Highlander and X-Files. Some are just bad, and not very funny. I can't bear to read deliberate spelling and grammatical errors; it hurts too much. However, Diary of a Horseman is absolutely hysterical. [HL, raping, pillaging, humor, crossover] Something of Interest is kinda hot. The fact that I find it more arousing than humorous probably says more about me than about the story. [XF, gunsex, videotape] "The Dream" and "Sewer Rat" are short Mulder/Krycek things. Kinda funny. [2]
