I remember everyone mentioned except the posters in this thread. Now I wonder if I would know you by a different moniker.
Do you remember?
Met him and his wife at a conference in Spokane. Remember his elaborate signature on Jesus_Witnesses (Jes-Wit)? We all got creative with signatures on the old e-mail lists.
He currently has a blog: www.docbob.org
Kent Steinhaug was the first person I ever sent an e-mail to. When first introduced to Internet in about 1995, first thing I plugged in was "Jehovah's Witnesses". I was stunned to see Websites like Watchtower Observer, All Along the Watchtower and Beyond the Watchtower. I was amazed at getting an e-mail reply back from Norway the same day. According to his Facebook, he may be living in Cyprus these days.
Joey Stagnitto. My first forum experience on Internet. He's still around but very low-key. He's friended on Greg Stafford's Facebook.
Met him in person two or three times at BRCI (after he came out of the closet). He caused quite a stir on Jes-Wit when he was JWing.
The all-time greatest shock wave to the Watch Tower Society imo. I would put it right along side Ray Franz's books for impact. Most exJW giants posted there in their hayday. Wonder where "Rick" is now?
BRCI Helpline, Marilyn Zweifel. It's still there. May be the last BRCI conference this year. It was great in its day (the '80s and '90s).
Had quite a bit of private e-mail exchange with him before he began posting on forums. Wonder how he is doing now.
One of them still posts as RR on Channel C.
I remember the early group of Philia (though I was not among the first). It finally got more popular and too rancorous, so I started a couple of my own lists. But earlier, it was on Philia that we planned and executed getting a WT private publication exposed.
eva luna asked about AlanF:
He was released from the hospital I think it was June 28. He went back to work almost immediately. Julie said he was doing fine, his heart had very little damage.
Some that I remember (some met):
Liberal Elder on H2O (was a JW apologist, but later started AJWRB).
All Along the Watchtower (Jan Haugland aka JanH)
Rational Witness (was a JW elder on H2O but eventually left).
Beyond the Watchtower
So many to remember, I know I'll think of some more. What a refreshing thread. Thanks.
