Not the First One to Try It

Is this article about my husband?

"MySpace gives pastor ‘prophetic’ edge"
Pastor Alton, who cultivates a reputation as a computer illiterate techno-phobe, is actually an avid reader of MySpace pages, blogs and personal websites of the people in his congregation.
"I appear, shall we say, un-hip," he says. "Therein lies my advantage."
Though he publicly refers to the Worldwide Web as the "Worldwide Waste" and e-mail as "sin-mail," in his home office is a bank of computer screens with more than 170 bookmarked sites — personal web pages, blogs, Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn, Digg, Flickr and more. Each week Alton surfs the sites for hours to find evidence of questionable behavior by people in his church. He jots offenses down and incorporates them into his Sunday sermons.

Wait, no. My husband doesn't try to hide his geekery!

I don't use my info to call people out, either, though.

I just use it for study purposes. :-)

Right, right--for the record, everyone, he doesn't call people out!

It's all in the name of science. For the children. Not at all because he just likes sharing stupid YouTube videos or anything frivolous like that.
