From emily shore's 2007 list: "The archiving instinct is a terrible thing. If you enjoy reading stories about Teena Mulder, it is perfectly natural to want to save some of them to your harddrive. It may even be perfectly natural to want to save all the ones you find, given how unusual they are. If you are me, however, there will come a day when you look long and hard at your "Teena" folder and think "wow, I may actually have the largest collection of Teena Mulder fanfic ever brought together in one place." And you ask yourself, "can I somehow win praise and approbation for this achievement?" The answer is almost certainly no. However, you can aim to provide a small service to humanity by cataloguing them in a comprehensive manner. Which is what I'm doing here."
