So the conversation goes amongst friendly ExJWs:
Optimist: Watchtower MUST be hurting for money. Look at all the downsizing and begging for money.
Pessimist: NO WAY they are hurting. They just sold property worth half a billion with half a billion more to go and they get a billion a year in donations. Appearing to be hurting is only a ploy to get more donations.
Antagonist: We will never know. So just STFU about it.
