OOHH WTS lurkers are reading this? Goodie, I have a message for them.
Dear WTS lurkers,
I can not begin to fathom how bad it must feel. You create and publish false predictions, then you change your mind about what you published like one changes jackets when the seasons change. But you know what the difference is between a publication and an old jacket? An old jacket can be discarded of, but an old publication will haunt you forever, no matter how desperately you try to hide it. When you get quoted with your own words, you feel the need to sue the person who quotes you. But you know what? By doing this, you generously admit to your own wrongs. It is obvious that quotes from your old publications can be very damaging to you. No wonder you want to protect your profitable publishing business, who would not do the same thing in your situation?
You might have managed to shut up the poor guy whose mere purpose it was to distribute a handful of quotes (and I sincerely hope that those quotes have helped many of your potential victims to make an informed decision in life.), but you didn't win. You showed your true colors, and you showed that money talks. In addition, you acted too late, really. Are you familiar with the expression "It is too late to fill the ditch after the calf has been drowned"? We are seeing a strikingly similar situation here. You can kill the kid who is handing out pamphlets on a street corner, but you can't chase and catch every passer-by who has received and read the pamphlets. Trust me, it is too late.
Do you keep records of how many families have been torn apart because of your unbiblical shunning rules? You did read the bible, right? Did you read the part where Jesus ate with sinners? I suggest you omit it in your next edition of the NWT, just like you have adjusted other parts to suit your particular needs.
Oh and by the way, could you please compensate me for emotional damages done during the year 1975? I was just a kid, you know, and I was scared to death all year long, because I thought the world was going to come to an end.
