The name actually comes from the first ever letters page from the
Fantastic Four comic. (
23854314794/32-ff-3-im-not-going-to-do-this-very-often) Someone who I
guess didn't write comics wrote in to complain about Marvel's
"creeping monsterism," a turn of phrase inspired by 50s Jean
Shephard's essay about "creeping meatballism." When I came across that
I knew it was the perfect name for a blog of some sort.

Also, the Powernaut's ask box seems to be broken, I fear.
