I've only encountered it in the context of Fanlore. I wonder if it's a regional usage?

I was in Blake's 7 fandom for years in the UK without ever encountering the term.

Well, there's a fair sized cohort of slash folk in London, UK who have been using it since, er, about 2000 at a guess. Maybe 1998. It's entirely possible that we co-opted the term from some of the old school PNW slashers such as Sandy or Charlotte C. No Blakes Seven involved though, I think at the time we were variously into Stargate, Sentinel, NSync and Highlander at that point.

There's a certain hilarity in the Fanlore page using quotes from two London based slashers (me and Stagie) about the existence of slashbash as a term, and then asserting it was PNW only :). I've um, made some changes.

I say before 2000, but it was not western media fandom, so idk if that counts for the purposes of this poll...
