Has anyone else noticed how you can tell who is new or fading, who was a long timer, who was never really into it, etc just from the way posts and language are structured? I think it struck me when I heard someone say they did their utmost to leave the organization..do your utmost..not a common expression in most people's worlds so it still twigged a JW connection. Reading Steve Hassan's book on mind control reminded me of just how important language is in cult group membership.
Those of you who wrote for university or work afterwards did you find that you had to curb your writing style to not sound jw'ish? Or that your writing evolved greatly over time?
