darth forsty: hmm... food for thought. Esp. your 2nd point. I never felt guilty when I was active and I talked to DF folks or inactive folks. (call it a soft spot. I thought I was showing them I was different and cared about them, not thier standing. That still was a bs move to make when I think about it now. Because hopefully they would see they needed to be back in the org.)
But not everyone feels the same.
I just read some post about the new article about being mentally diseased. What a joke, but I understand the "mental pressure" JWs go though when they think they are being disloyal, although really they're just being human. SMH!
