Definitely this site helps awaken JW's who are sitting on the fence, people who are perhaps having doubts themselves within. Even if a JW hasn't VERBALLY spoken out loud to other fellow JW's and they keep their doubts to themselves- Simon's board here is a great release or an outlet or a conduit for those JW's still having silent doubts - too fearful of sharing those doubts with jW family and friends.
Thus we see as another poster mentioned people coming on introducing themselves as " long time lurker, first time poster ", so we realize a lot of good information has already been entering the neurotransmitters in their minds from this board to counteract the JW drivel they get being spewed from kingdom hall platforms.
It's up to us to keep the ball of access to helpful information to keep rolling for these people. Kind of like the movie " Pay it Forward " with Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt about 10 years ago. Start a good deed like the boy did in the movie helping others- then the next person does something good for the next person, and so on. Before too long you have all of these ex-JW's caring for one another and showing a hell of a lot more authentic love to exiting JW's than they ever received inside the cult. It's an amazing transformation and an opportunity for many of us to help people in ways that we never ever did as JW's. Just my 2 cents
