I was still a JW when I first had my picture posted on an ex-jw site. My face was pixilated, but I was still recognizable to people who knew me. Within a week I started getting calls from elders who wanted to meet with me, and they started coming to my home and pounding on my door. There was even a car chase - which ended when they discovered it was my (now ex) wife driving my truck.
Coming out of the apostate closet wasn't easy, but once it was done I could truly begin getting on with my life. I no longer had to look over my shoulder to see if some JW was watching me as I engaged in my "worldly" pursuits.
