Don't blog - write letters...

According to The Register, blogging is un-Christian:

Blathering on blogs is un-Christian, an Evangelical church has warned.
"Blogging has become a socially accepted practice - just as are dating seriously too young, underage drinking and general misbehaving," notes the monthly of the Reformed Church of God, Ambassador Youth.
Blogging "often makes the blogger feel good or makes him feel as if his opinion counts - when it is mostly mindless blather!" notes Kevin D Denee.
"Much of this is simply blathering on blogs - mindless words and idle communication. Blogs can be summed up as people talking about almost anything, but really nothing. There is no purpose to much of the contents - no direction."
This, we learn conflicts with the advise given in Proverbs 17:27-28 ...
Fair enough.
Blogging is also dangerous because of its addictive quality, we're told.
"All that said, you can—and SHOULD—maintain friends the “old-fashioned” way, through actual personal contact, as well as letter writing, emailing or instant messaging".

Just as well I only found out *after* I stopped - otherwise I would have had to keep going :-)

Go ye therefore hence, and blather no more? Seriously, where can I get some of what they're smoking...
