Hi everyone, visitors, critics:
I was just wondering… what’s happened to the cryptozoology community? Can someone let me know? I’m looking for the best breaking news, commentary and quality discussion.
Here’s what I found:
Cryptomundo is not worth looking at everyday. It’s a platform, not a discussion group. The stories posted are questionable in content and over-hyped. But, it’s good for breaking news, I guess. That is, if you can stop from rolling your eyes at the credulity. I have a bad attitude towards CM because my replies were censored or deleted. Because dissenting opinion was not allowed, that’s no place for discussion. So, it’s hard to go there knowing I’m not allowed to participate. I find the money requests distasteful as well. Perhaps if they acted more professional and welcoming, I might reconsider.
Since a discussion on my Cryptozoology-Sham Inquiry post was occurring on Cryptozoology.com, I returned there and tried to post. I can’t get my posts to show up. They are in my profile as dead links and not visible in the thread. I’ve given up after 3 attempts and the moderator is unresponsive. Also, there are definitely web site problems and it’s a very web 1.0 format. Seems like a small group there.
There are various blogs and other old sites up. Some good, some awful.
I like Wildlife Mysteries, The Blogsquatcher and Jon Downes’ Still On the Track for daily news. Darren rules when he geeks out on cryptids. He is my source for carcass explanations. I don’t frequent those forums that spin off from the mystery mongering sites. Nor have I frequented the Bigfoot specialty forums. It’s too bad there isn’t a good general forum.
(I suuuuuurrrrrre wish Monster Science had a forum and more content! Hint, hint.)
