Believe me, if inactive JWs will officially be considered having DA'd, the elders would be told first in a letter from the WTS; the first notice will not be in an article in a WT. So I gather that those men who post here who have demonstrated they are still in the elder notification loop, will get notification first and let us know.
Most JWs are very wary around inactive JWs; some even taking it upon themselves to actively shunning those people. I wonder at what point an inactive JW will be considered to have DA'd?
At 6 months on the dot?
At 12 months, 18 months, 24 months..............
Will be in conjunction with an attempt by the elders to meet with them and a polite refusal by the inactive person?
What if people go to all the meetings but turn in no time..........
What if people attend the meetings for years and don't get baptized (I have known several people like that over the years)?
