‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ History Excluded from Wayback Machine Archives

We published a long post looking at The Lost History of Fifty Shades of Grey recently, using the Wayback Machine to explore the Twilight fan fiction roots of E.L. James‘ runaway bestseller.

The Wayback Machine has since removed this record. We contacted Internet Archive for more information, and received this response: “The Internet Archive honors requests from domain and site owners to exclude page from the Wayback Machine at their request.”

Our original post still contains screenshots of some of the deleted content, but if you search the digital archive for those records, you now get this message: “Sorry. This URL has been excluded from the Wayback Machine.”
