eiviiaru, in a digression about Jossverse pairing names within this i_wank post:

To me, this entire thread sounds like a bad '70's Super Robot anime: "Quick! Dock your Spander into Xangel-01 -- the Hetatrons are rampaging through Tokyo!!"

Personally, I want a "save the / " t-shirt!

This has long been a topic. Although I think that "Spuffy" if the WORST combo name there is.

And not just because of the content...

We should make tshirts. Put the "/" back into Slash!

Actually I probably am less annoyed by 'Spuffy' because I don't care about (fic-wise) and actively dislike (canon-wise) the content, with limited exceptions in both fic and canon.

If that makes any sense. Like, I care about 'Spander' because I actually read the pairing. Spuffy doesn't bother me. Also, because it's so widespread and has been for so long, even in non-fic settings, that I don't think of it as a pairing-smoosh, but as a Discussion-Board joke.
