Thanks for the prompt to my thinking. Here's the comment I posted there:

Science fiction as an ongoing conversation isn’t a new idea, but you’ve prompted a new answer to a question which has bothered me for a long time.
When I try to find the most basic differences between “fandom” and “media fandom” / “old fandom” and “new fandom” / “fandom” and “fandoms” I usually just get old/young stuff, which is uninformative. But a key may be that they are different conversations. DC/Marvel, numbered Doctors, etc., etc. are different clades. I think that may be a good handle. I’ll think about it.

That's a good way of looking at it.
