It's ironic that a website that had no 'critical analysis' of the quoted material, just the quotes alone(so as to not be 'apostate') is shot down by the WTS while dozens of other sites(anti-JW and apostate in nature)are allowed to exist with the same material because they provide 'critical analysis'.
ain't it though?
Lurkers, active JWs and all other interested ones. Examine every single "quote" in your WT material. No permissions were ever obtained from the original author who was cited.
In fact, they have boldly plagarized other source material on many occasions with no credit to the author.
Don't believe me? For newbies I will cite an example that I have mentioned on this board before.
About 17-18 years ago while visiting NYC, my sister and I stayed in the Waldorf and dined in the Russian Tea Room. She purchased a "matroika" for about $3,500 and a book about the history of the matroika. (A "matroika" (SP?) is also known in Russian as a matrushka. These are the little wooden dolls that stack inside of the other ones.
About six months later (?) you guessed it! The AWake ran an article about the matroika. My sister immediately recognized the wording of the article. It was directly stolen, literally word for word from the book she had purchased previously. Some of the phrases were not even changed. It was credited, of course to the anonymous "By AWake! Correspondent in Russia."
Perhaps someone can post that article here from a CD ROM, please?
I'm sure the "Society" never in a million years thought that anyone would own that book.
JW Publishing house truly has two sets of scales.
JWs ask yourself, why the only book they've ever published which included source material (Creation) was an embarrasment to them. Original articles and authors were contacted to verify the truthfulness of their work. Lo and behold, the JW were discredited once again.
Correspondents my ass, Class
