    What's up with this? It seems that with the January Study magazine it's been trimmed by by four pages. Have any of you commented on this?

    Just when you think cutbacks have reached their limit, they keep cutting back.

    Hang on, it seems they’ve moved the contents page to the back of the magazine, that’s all. Still 32 pages. Or what do you mean?

    At the rate they're going, before too long, they'll be two just two pages a year, printed out by some IT geek in his basement somewhere. :smirk:

    I have been out for years. What is the current WT and Awake compared to 95 printed version. Do they still print them? How are they distributed? In 95 they still shipped them to the hall and you picked up your order at the book counter

    Currently, there is one Asleep! rag per month, and it is only 16 pages. The washtowel has been split up into Showcase edition (which is placed in public, and has 16 pages) and a Kool-Aid edition (which is studied at the boasting session, contains the hard core doctrines, and still has 32 pages). The Showcase edition is monthly, and the Kool-Aid edition is also monthly. This means that, each month, you have to work with the same rags all month, and if you get one bad article, you are stuck with it.

    This is what happens to an organization when you base its theology on ignorance and crass commercialism or another description would be corrupt intentional fear mongering.

    I told my spouse we would not recognize the org if we went today after leaving in the mid 90s

    WtWizard, love your terminology, that's spot on. Koolaid edition, hahaha. Drink up, sheep.

    I noticed that as well when I was searching for the study dates for each article, switched to the back; I thought my printer had sorted it wrong.

    Most articles are a rehash or recent articles less than 3 years before. The flock are not retaining the counsel from the slave evidently and require constant reminders. I guess they are not paying attention rather meditating on other things.
