    That's stalking. Don't bother writing a letter to them, report the incident to the police.

    Gypsy Sam- "I'm sorry you went through that. Why can't they just leave people alone?? They have no respect for boundaries, personal priorities or just giving someone space!!!"

    AnneB "That's stalking. Don't bother writing a letter to them, report the incident to the police"

    I second that.

    I remember going to elders school over 30 years ago and one entire session was about cleaning up old business with those who had drifted. "Officially in or officially out!" was the theme of the discussion. We were to hunt down (ambush) the miscreants and put them on the spot. It actually reactivated a couple people who didn't want to upset JW familiy ties. Most others said in so many words, "do what you need to do..."

    Searcher" Romans 6:7, how was it interpreted by the GB? How can any Bible reader not accept that as literal, what's their meanings of it?

    I agree with anyone who think's the best solution is to use "hurt feelings" or "depression or anxiety", "sorting out personal problems on my own, I don't like talking about them because my doctor said not to!" or "My problem is with people who ripped me off or acted like devils, when the Organization finally removes the bad men I will come back. I am waiting on Jehovah to remove the problem from his temple, when he does, I will come back!

    Lol, I got the letter in certified mail with the sender very much obfuscated. They intentionally misspelled one of the elders' name and from a totally different address than the KH.

    Either way, the charge is "loose conduct" and if I don't show up, they'll make the decision for me. I'm laughing so hard right now because I so much want to go in detail to them about this 'loose conduct' that I have been doing.

    Make no mistake...they already have!

    I'm amazed they put ''loose conduct''(TM) in the letter.

    Can't you take them to court and sue them for defamation of character?

    Who are they to judge you?

    I have an image of the elders in their meeting, looking at their watch. How long do they wait for you to show up? Fifteen minutes? An hour? What a waste away from their families. I'd be inclined to send a copy to bethel along with the botched registration (please don't bother to reply), and frame the original for the front hallway.

    ANONYMOUS- Indeed, the elders ARE very weak in that they keep preying on us even years after we stop attending. They came after me almost 4 years after I stopped attending trying to snoop into my life. Keep your distance from them. Give no quarter, or no information to them whatsoever- they don't deserve it and what you do with your life is NONE of their business. They'll just try to turn your wife or former friends against you. Good luck

    You handled this situation well. I agree that no information given them the better. If they are after you, then let them work for it. No need to place yourself in the torcher chamber with a couple of elders.
