In 2005 the sum of Memorial partakers world wide numbered 8,524. The following year, in 2006, they tallied an increase to 8,758 partakers. In 2007 the number went up again to 9,105. In 2008 the number rose to 9,986. In 2010, the number of partakers grew to 11,202. And recently, it was published that the number in 2011 rose again to the tune of 11,824 partakers (Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses, 2006, p.31; 2007 p.31; 2008, p. 31;2009, p.31;Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses, 2011, p.51; Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses, 2012, p.55 respectively), This is an increase of exactly 3,300 partakers over seven years! (and, haven't some of the elderly ones passed away during this time?). AND...in spite of the Watchtower Society publishing these everincreasing numbers, they have declared that the number has been decreasing over the years! (The Watchtower, February 15, 2009, pp. 2728, para.14)

Plus I know of a couple who partake privately due to so much otracism/criticism when they were partaking publicly at the KH.
There must be more.

JWOP Thanks for sharing those numbers of partakers the last 6 years or so. It truly shows this is a wacked out organization when they lie about the increasing numbers of partakers  yet at the same time the numbers partaking have increased by about 39 % over the last 6 years from 8,524 partakers to 11, 824 partakers. That's pretty weird and again a telling sign that somethings seriously wrong and amiss with this organization

These numbers are collectively embarrassing for the Watchtower. The numbers also inadvertently suggest that the Watcthower is not "massaging" the numbers in its annual report of their worldwide work, as some have claimed. If the Watchtower were adjusting the numbers to align with their teachings (e.g., that the number of anointed is decreasing), we would not see the consecuative yearly increases since 2005. Yet, at the same time, pressure must be on to "make sense" of the significant increase in the number of attendees who are taking the emblems.
