I gave this some thought, and had the idea of a "Sparlock Award" to recognize singular members of the XJW community.
Some potential recipients (that I would nominate); Barb Anderson, Steve Unthank, Candace Conti, Dogpatch, and posthumously, Ray Franz and Oompa.
Just my opinion.
RayPublisher - "I believe under public pressure or possibly even under threat of law the WT will change their damaging policy."
I would have maybe thought that 5 or 10 years ago, but these days, the rhetoric gives too much of an impression that they're doubling down on the zero-tolerance approach for breaking WT rules, rather than easing up.
I really think they want to significantly reduce the overall number of rank-and-filers to maybe 1 or 2 million hard-core followers, but they want to manage it in such a way that it doesn't look like they're orchestrating it.
Don't forget that virtually all indications point to the conclusion that the GB themselves are full-on True Believers; digging in their heels against the "worldy" winds of change is just the sort of thing people like that do.
