I can understand your views on Joseph Smith's translation, but I've
always been a little surprised at the Diaglott being in the Cult /
Unorthodox / Questionable material.  I don't use it, but I thought
that it was just a Greek / English NT or something similar.  Looking
at the info page, it says that it is from Watchtower.  Does that
automatically make it questionable, or are there other reasons? (or
are the reasons lost in history anyway?)
