I was never df'd - I am a successful fader (long before the internet).
I had a desire to learn and liked to read a lot of different things - that was my "weakness." Add to that the fact that the WT literature was starting to smell fishy - the whole of human history - a mere backdrop for the shenanigans of the Int'l Bible Students? I don't think so! In the words of another poster - "It make me hurl sick!"
