I asked the question on Quora "How do Jehovah's Witnesses feel about the announcement that the public edition of the Watchtower and Awake! magazine is being reduced to just 3 issues a year and the number of books, tracts, and online content are being discontinued?"
The replies actually took me by surprise. I'm assuming these are uber-dubs:

I feel Just fine, thank you for asking.
I think however, the arrangement is great and will be more productive for all of us. Less time spent with people who take the magazines out of politeness, but never read them. We will be focused on the people who are interested and willing to progress spiritually.
I frankly like the efficiency of this new arrangement.
Interesting that you have a letter from the Governing Body. Because you are not active as a Jehovah’s Witness. You obviously have friends that have access.

Quite fascinating. We truly are living in momentous times, whether we are willing to recognize it or not.
“More emphasis will be placed on starting and continuing conversations.”
The added highlighting of “conversations” will enable JWs to concentrate on getting God’s way of thinking into the hearts and minds of those who express interest.
We long ago learned the destiny of those who. like the evolutionist Dr. Richard Lewontin, whose most remarkable thought was “We need to avoid letting a Divine foot in the door.”
Obviously Dr. Lewontin is one of those NOT willing to recognize that we do have a God who loves all humans, and simply hates those who cannot see their way clear to obeying Him.

Hello!I feel same-to-same.
As long as we keep the Bible forever, any changes on the magazines will not make a huge difference after all.
