I've coined a new word: failfen

"Failfen" means "fans of fail." "Fen" is a long-time fannish plural for "fans." And nowadays, so very many people seem to be fans of fail—there's even a failblog—that it just seems like time for "failfen." Though "failfans" might be clearer, so I may stick with that from now on. Too often, what I think is clever is opaque.
