thanks sizemik I have been trying to keep the topic on task otherwise it can be hijacked by all sorts of issues. Although it has been useful to let people know how to become a do not call that is not really the focus of this.
It has been extremely enlightening to see the JW, exJW and non JW responses to the article and there is a nice body of evidence building showing that JWs artitudes are moulded by what they read. I have been very disappointed by their tone and their arguments.
No official line from Bethel but then that is unlikely to happen.
