The community may have been created in response to perceived low quality of fic posted to slashatthedisco. An early mod post contained some very specific rules:
2. No first comment dances or any other celebratory comments like that. Come on, seriously? It adds nothing and it annoys everyone. Please refrain from expressing your idiocy in such a blatant fashion. We will ban you if you so much as attempt to do a first comment dance.
3. Each line of your story does not require a new, separate paragraph. I don't care if you type up your stories in Microsoft Word and paste them into livejournal - fix your shit. It's hard to read, annoying, unprofessional, and makes you look like a complete and utter moron. If you can't master the simple concept of paragraphs you probably shouldn't be writing.
4. If you're going to attempt to pass something off as a chapter, it damn well better have more than 200 words. Put time and effort into your stories, don't just rush through them. Two lines of dialogue and a paragraph of prostate-ramming does not a chapter make.
The mod also remarked, "If you feel as if your story isn't good enough for this community, please, do not submit it because it probably isn't." 
Another PATD slash community, discoattheslash, was created a few weeks later with a radically different policy: "Our reason for creating this community is to give writers of Panic! slash a solace where the rules aren't too tight and where they don't have to fight with their self esteem before even posting."
