I agree with the sentiment in this thread. I have no interest in joining FB (or similar platform) to discuss our love of monsters.  In my experience there are too many uninformed and bitter people out there in social media land. I like our corner of the universe here.

In terms of activity on UMA, I admit once the semester starts my participation tends to go down. I still check the forum every day, just post a bit less. But when I'm not teaching I post as often as possible.

Yes, please do. the administrators might want to change their question to one less subject to interpretation/debate. I wonder how many other potential members just gave up on the effort to join?

I'm an interdisciplinary guy, so my backgrounds are in criminology, cultural studies, and political science. Most of my work these days is in criminology and cultural studies. For example, i teach "Crime and Film" classes. That's a lot of fun. I try to incorporate as many horror films as possible. Frankenstein and Psycho are always part of the syllabus. Often I bring in American Psycho, Seven, Silence of the Lambs, and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre as well. We tried Land of the Dead one semester but students didn't seem to like it  :(.

Oh.  My.  God.  Yes.

I am part of a Dark Shadows Facebook group, and you wouldn't believe the amount of stupid that exists there.  People literally just believing facts into reality.  I've watched the entire series dozens of times.  I know my stuff.  But I rarely participate in the discussions because people there literally just make stuff up or decide they want something to be true, and thus it is.  Must be nice to live in a fact-less world.

Seriously, though, I don't know what happened between the invention of message boards and the time social media took off, but literally everyone thinks his opinion is valid now.  On message boards, facts generally prevailed.  Even when you had a moron, people would keep him inline and eventually silence his voice.  On Facebook, blithering banter reigns supreme, totally unchecked.  I think it's the way it's formatted.  People just talk to talk, not because they actually know what to say.  And there's no way to say that's not okay.
