Your decision shows a proper perspective on those sites.  However, have you
considered using filtering?  There are some ISPs that provide filtering,
and there is also filtering software available (Crosswalk.com offers a free
filter of some sort).

I tend to shudder when I see or hear ads that make it seem that everyone
needs to be online, or any business not online won't be in business soon. 
This is clearly hype!  But I would hate to lose someone making a Christian
impact on the net.

I also believe it is wise to avoid situations that tempt us in areas where
we are likely to falter, and you are the one to best know whether the
internet provides such a temptation to you.

Since I lean toward Calvinistic views, I can only say that God will be
glorified no matter what your decision is.

God bless you!
