You're asking if I have secret wiretaps of conversations that occurred in cons in the 1980s? Strangely enough, no. Doesn't stop it from being common knowledge from those which were there.

Are you aware of any places in which other people who were in Doctor Who fandom in the 1980s and 1990s have written about this apparently well-known fact?

I mean like for Pete's sake. Doctor Who fandom is extraordinarily well-documented and given to vociferous argument and people have genuinely been writing about this shit going back to the actual 80s. A lot of BNFs have been BNFs since the actual 80s. I would think if this was something that had happened, it would have gotten a ton of press, the same way that Moffat's 90s interview where he talked shit about classic Who has gotten a ton of press. But I've never seen any mention of it outside of people talking about the ending of Curse of Fatal Death.
