Please help me understand why the...
Send address should be to HQ, and if desired CC you local hall
From how I was reading it earlier, I understood the send address would be to your local hall and if you wished you could cc the branch/HQ.
I'm thinking that:
if letters are sent en mass to HQ there's the potential HQ would clue in to what was happening and could simply assign someone to quietly put them in the bin and nothing much would come of it.
But if there are real DA letters in there, would they risk throwing them away?
If they are anonymous I think they would. I get the sense that they would do what they could to quickly bury it and minimise the effect as it's all happening at the centre. It would be just a blip on their radar.
But send to individual KH's and they have a potential nightmare on their hands as word gets around, and elders don't know what to do and they phone the branch and they scour their congregations... etc etc... :)
The risk is HQ would handle it like any other organisation handling a public relations situation. They would assign a few people to deal with it and no one else really need know. They'll skim a few thousand letters over a few days and quietly put them in the bin and that will be it.
But if those same few thousand letters went to a few thousand KH's then there would be a few thousand elders wondering what to do and a few thousand calls to the branch and to the CO etc. and the effects would last for weeks/months.
I think it very much depends on the outcome you are seeking to achieve.
Sounds like a plan! :)
