Does it bug you that there are notes about you stuck somewhere in a kingdom hall file cabinet? I cant say that its kept me up at night, but it does bother me that there are notes from my judicial hearing (and a file) that I cant access but just about anyone with a little bit of nerve can. Anyway, I decided to call the PO from the last congregation I was in and request that these notes be destroyed. I really didnt expect him to say "no problem." Just as I thought, he went on about Society procedure."what if you decided to come back..blah blah blah". So I wrote the Society, requesting the same thing and copied the local PO. A couple of weeks later I received a letter from the Society. Nothing lengthy, basically a three sentence letter saying that they were confident that the local PO would handle this matter is a fine way. So I try calling the PO but hes out of town on vacation. I finally get a hold him, just yesterday, refreshed his memory about my request. Again expecting a "no, I cant because ofblah blah blah" I was instead surprised when he said "we (Im assuming him and the other elders, unless hes completely lost his mind) have decided to destroy your file". To say the least, I was stunned. I was expecting at least some type of argument.
Has anyone else requested that their judicial hearing notes be destroyed? BTW, I did follow up with a letter to the PO confirming our phone conversation and thanking him for his time.
