    Precious little interest being shown so far!

  • nowwhat?

    This is why after 3 Years i might leave this forum. If I want 90% irrelevant crap I'll go back to the meetings!

  • stillin

    It seems like a good idea. I post my share of tripe but an area for current news is a good idea.

    nowwhat do not be discouraged , your idea sounds good ,keep posting

    You just might have to be more selective in choosing what posts you look at .

    This still is the best site I have come across despite its minor faults.

    Take care.

    Ukraine ? isn't there a war going on there? Please correct me.

  • darkspilver

    Just throwing out some thoughts here.....I think there's a threefold problem going on....

    FIRST: There is a seemingly lack of interest in WT 'leaks'? This is perhaps most clearly evidenced by the apparent lack of 'up-votes' that those posts actually get?

    A leaked WT letter (admittedly rather boring) gets just ONE 'up-vote' (in 21 hours) - hmmm....

    SECOND: There is admittedly a problem of how to control and manage spam - I seem to be limited to posting just one new thread in every 24-hours - that's a DISincentive to post things like the above WT letter in it's own thread (when more people might see it) because what happens if I wanna post something else (that I think is more important or interesting?) in it's own thread within 24 hours? I can't - so I don't post the first thread.

    THIRD: When something is of interest, it gets 'repeat-posted' by other people here (and yes, some is to be expected) but when the same thing gets posted as new threads SIX times, well, ok, that's worst case, but still - it shows that people aren't really actually reading the forum.... therefore why post in the first case.

    Judge bars Jehovah's Witness from taking son to some religious events

    Portsmouth The News, Sunday 11 June 2017

    A Jehovah's Witness embroiled in a family court dispute with his estranged wife has been barred from taking his six-year-old son to some religious events by a judge.

    District Judge Malcolm Dodds has refused to allow the man to take the little boy to Jehovah's Witness assemblies, annual conventions and memorials.

    The judge concluded that there was a risk of the youngster suffering "emotional damage".

    He heard that the couple had separated about a year after the man began to study the Jehovah's Witness faith.

    The boy now lived with his mother, who did not practise any religion.

    Mum raised on council estate made £300million but it destroyed her husband and ruined her marriage

    The Sunday Mirror, Sunday 11 June 2017

    A millionairess raised on a council estate has told how her fairytale turned to dust when her husband cheated on her – then hid their £300million fortune.

    Sarah Pursglove and her partner had unimaginable wealth – a £25million penthouse, a £22million yacht, a private jet, a property empire and a booming online business.

    But she says the money “absolutely ruined” her husband Robert Oesterlund, 44.

    Sarah grew up in a three-bed semi in North Wales while Robert was the shy son of Finnish Jehovah’s Witnesses. The pair met while she was working as a cruise ship photographer and fell madly in love.
