When I was a zealous new JW I remember reading that unbaptized publishers who had been removed via judicial action should be treated the same as those who were disfellowshipped. Whenever I brought this up, I got a bunch of blank stares in return.
Years later I figured it out. I had an old copy of the OM book. A subsequent version had since come out and scrubbed that part.
Sadly, there are many other examples similar to this. Faithful JWs rarely notice.
