    If you are, please cast your vote! Many of us are of the belief that you do not have computers. Are we wrong?

    This is not meant to be insulting. Many of us are curious about your culture. :yes:

    Most of us Amish aren't online because kerosene-fired computers are still rather expensive.

    I am not Amish. I always thought that the Amish never used computers.

    The Amish don't use computers. Young Amish teens during their Rumspringa can, but few sects even practice Rumspringa.

    The way I learned more about Amish culture was by reading books and watching documentaries.

    I worked side by side with Amish folks in a greenhouse for 3 years.
    This was a highly rewarding friendship and a pleasure to share in talks with.

    I was a little surprised to see a DIR though......
