Great post. I think there is much to the cultural thing. The Amish way was to stay on the farm with the parents until marriage. Then a new house was built on the farm for the newlyweds. The farms have been is some Amish families for multiple generations. Of course, I don't think you'll get too many Amish poster on the forum. Style isn't an Amish thing and I'm fairly certain they don't have kerosene powered computers.
