Could it be that the wts actually thinks it can win this war? I mean, they are forcing sites to close down, suing the people that run them etc. etc. I wonder if this is the way they want to "handle" the internet problem. Are they nuts? or do they have the money, support, and wherewithal to actually pull it off? The wts is a powerful organization. They have a ton of money, and the means to do alot of things, but is it enough? I'm starting to get a little concerned about the latest sites closing down, and the wts' ability to affect these closures.
I thought the societys' approach was going to be just to try and ignore these anti-jw sites, but it seems they are pulling up their bootstraps and going to war against the internet apostates. And by the accounts I'm seeing, they are winning. How long will it be before they can say: "Hey, WE NEVER SAID THAT" in answer to people who ask about contradictions in their past literature and so forth. They change the bound volumes to reflect "current thinking" and unless you have the original versions of their literature, you won't be able to prove that they have been contradictory. How will this affect "new ones" who research the jw's?
Does the society have the clout and power to actually win the war of (mis) information with the general public and jw's alike?
How long will it be before THIS SITE gets shut down?
When the powers that be in Bethel got together to discuss their strategy in regards to the handling of the "internet issue" in closed sessions, do you think that after discussing other options, they decided.."Let's go after 'em. We've got the money, the support, and Jehovahs' backing. Let's go for it!. This internet apostate scourge MUST BE STOPPED! We're losing too many because of it!???????" Do they feel it's their only chance of saving their sorry butts?
It's obvious they aren't just going to lay down.
