    Reporting video viewings WTF? This is like something from a Monty Python skit.

    A new nadir reached in the sheer obnoxiousness of this lunatic religion.

    By the way, this letter has not been released to elders in the US at this time.

    Why do they need publishers to count video views - that can easily be done at the server.

    Users can download the videos. The server wouldn't track how often a downloaded video was played.

    Please note that beginning in January 2016, publishers’ placements will no longer be reported to the branch office. Neither will video showings be reported. However, in order to monitor congregation activity, placements and video showings should still be recorded in the congregation’s files.

    This is a much bigger change than the re-name and re-shuffle of the midweek meeting.

    There is some hidden reason why they are changing this. Best guess is that it somehow reduces their exposure to liability and/or lawsuits.

    It's very odd that the US elders are still in the dark about this.

    Or, maybe, it is a UK-only change? In the US the placements will still be reported?

    Is being read in Canada this week.

    I can see them in time giving out nine year old magazines like they are giving out nine year old teaching books now.

    Keep in mind that the "January/February" 2016 Awake is labelled "1 - 2016" - no Best Before Date.

    So, in some future Yearbook, if they're still including a detailed country-by-country service report, there'll be a single category showing they are increasing their placements by gazillions.

    Page 2 of the Awake no longer says "Printed" number of issues - it now says "Produced" number of issues, and it went up 6,000,000 issues from December to January.

    Offering Magazines: It would not be appropriate to distribute magazines indiscriminately to those who have not shown interest

    That rules out placements in laundramats, doctors waiting rooms, those wedged in doorknobs?

    Thanks, Watchtower!
