Since the "oh so important" bookstudy was deleted some time ago, they're probably reinstating "goody night" once a month, right after the service meeting is concluded....Wouldn't want to miss out on that !
Seriously though, some have speculated that they'll soon do away with DF'ing and shunning. Since you brought this topic up in your conversation with them, maybe that's what they're talking about. Can't you imagine how furious some JW's would be if they no longer had any excuse to shun people they've been shunnin for years? Talk about having to eat Crow !
I doubt it though, it's more likely the "goody night" thing.
