    Watchtarded Bile & Trash Society evidently didn't Google mushroom picking! *Facepalm*

    I'll have to give them a "W" for their use of illustrations.

    Mushrooms and snakes- strange analogies!

    "Never assume that all information found on the Internet is good and beneficial .(What a redundant and nebulous statement) Internet search engines might (weasel word) be compared to a legion of mushroom pickers who tirelessly collect all types of mushrooms - edible as well as poisonous - throwing them into a single container and dishing them out for us to eat." (What a fallacious illustration. Legions do not go out picking mushrooms indiscriminately. Illustration busted!)

    "Would you start eating these mushrooms without carefully examining each one? (Hypocrisy!! The WTB$ tells it’s members not to investigate their own faith outside of the WTB$’s own literal-trash) Of course not! Internet search engines use a huge number of computers to harvest or select from billions of Web pages containing everything from the very best to the very worst. (Here we go…I feel an ‘apostate’ warning coming on!) We need discernment to separate the wheat from the chaff, as it were, lest we poison our minds with mis-information." (Need discernment? Nah. They mean need the WTB$ propaganda only. This is blatantly an ‘’Information Control’’ tactic at work!)

    So, then, what should we do with regard to the Internet? Shun it altogether? That may (weasel word) be necessary in some cases. The Internet junkie (Ad Hominem? Straw man? Appeal to fear tactics?) mentioned earlier did that in order to overcome years of addiction. (Who’s this then ‘Andre’ again? Yet another fictitious person?) On the other hand, using the Internet can benefit us, provided we let 'thinking ability keep guard over us and discernment safeguard us.' (Make up your mind WTB$! Or is this to justify the existence othe the WTB$’s own site?) -Prov. 2:10, 11." (A scripture. Yes! That well known book of the Bible about the internet…NOT! Appeal to authority, me thinks!)
