answer is posted below.

For about a year, because it is a great outlet for communiexcremeditation.

One. There is only one.

>7) Do you use the 'net as a substitute for traditional news media (i.e.
>radio, TV, newspapers/magazines)? Why?

Traditional news media are tools of the Conspiracy and the right-wing
fundamentalists (be they Democans or Republicrats).

>8) Do you think the traditional news media does a good job covering religion?

Not from where I'm sitting.

>9) Do you take ideas from the 'net for in-person religious discussions?

Only if the planets are aligned just so, and my supply of newt isn't running

>10) What do you think of "flaming" on the 'net? Do you think people misuse or
>abuse the 'net?

They do as they see fit.

>11) Do you think your religion or faith is perceived accurately on line?

It's perceived as others want to perceive it.

>12) Have your views changed because of discussions on line? How?

Yes, they've gotten stronger.

>13) Do you trust religious texts transmitted on line? Why or why not?

Our online discussions are a constant wave-pool of online anit-dogma.
