Where DOES this horrible expression come from? And what the hell does it denote in terms of fandom?
Most people don't know but it is a horrible word, a portmanteau of 'stalker' and 'fan'. It is more derogatory than calling someone a tard like Renatard or Haleptard.

I much prefer signature ladies. It is self explanatory on TF.

Tard is definitely more derogatory. The meaning for stan has been eroded to the point where it's basically just an annoying synonym for fan.

Stalker + Fan = Stan.

Eminem released a song about an obsessed fan called Stan, I think it comes from that.

It's a bit cringe but there I can think of worse phrases on the internet.
