I think changes in the legal scene are altering their behavior, and will continue to do so. There is a subtle shift happening right now. Call me crazy, but I can smell it. There is a new CO talk going around about being "molded for dishonorable use", this basically means that the moment YOU DECIDE to disobey the local BOE [ no matter how wrong or dumb they are ] you are on the celestial hit list.
I have been thinking about this and it is not as bad as you would imagine. The Eldubs know or will know, very soon, that they are on their own legally. The CO also ranted and raved about abusive Eldubs and " God help them if they abuse the flock." So there is some serious sh** hitting a big ass fan somewhere. This is good news, as it means Eldumbs are going to be more afraid of "abusing" someone and finding themselves on Jeehoober's hit list, or perhaps being sued for defamation. [ wink ]
So I think as more time passes, especially after a certain case is decided, the Eldubs are going to be hamstrung. What can they REALLY do?? They are steadily being reduced to pencil pushers who can only regurgitate the delusional ranting of the GB. Even now, the CO is taking on more power and the Elders have less. Their only "power" is to repeatedly extend " kindly efforts" to weak ones. Besides that [ unless you openly challenge the doctrines ] they can't do anything. It's a corporation, so make sure your paper work is turned in and stay off the radar. Even if the BOE doesn't like you or thinks you are rebellious, it's in Jeehoober's hands. He may be molding you. In the meantime you are living YOUR LIFE and they are wasting theirs for the WTBTS.
As far as Eldubs spying on JWN, they are. What are they gonna do?? Are they going to invite more Elders here so they can have a witness? That's assuming they could even positively identify you, which they cannot. Even then you would have to confess, which you won't. That brings us back to the whole " molding" farce, which translates to " wait and see/kindly efforts" and that means " Jeehoober's hands", which means you will be ignored unless you kick the hornets nest.
