    I come here to get advanced notice on changes coming to the congregations that I'm going to have to adapt to, like the new "tithing" arrangement. I'm glad I got a "heads-up" on that one. It was a whopper.

    The "weeping and gnashing" pity parties on here I'm not much interested in.

    The worst offenders are the ones who have never had any connection to JWs at all, but simply come here looking for vulnerable, lost souls to save exploit.

    I agree completely.

    I give them a chance to 'have an opinion' but there is no reasoning with them and they have no self-control. It's like religious turrets syndrome - endlessly blurting out jesus-jingo.

    For confirmation bias, I suppose. It's comforting to know I'm not alone. I've also got a variety of advise ont his site to help navigate unchartered territories. Additionally, I am hoping to help others. We are all in this together.

    It makes me feel less alone.

    Simon - "It's like religious turrets syndrome - endlessly blurting out jesus-jingo."

    Did you mean "tourette's syndrome"?

    If so, "endlessly blurting out jesus-jingo" just put the weirdest image in my head...

    To keep my sanity. Before I found this place in 2005, WOW I thought I

    was alone. My circumstances were so unique (DF). You folks don't

    realize how you guys pulled me out of the depth of hell. I know

    for a fact there are others here that is having a hard time, they are hurting.

    I'm playing it forward...
