GDPR: help for PIMOs
Just take the form with you and ''keep on forgetting'' to fill it out and leaving it at home all the time. When the elders hound you for it, just tell them that you keep on ''forgetting'' it ''stupid me'', LOL.
The individual must have the "Right to be Forgotten" (i.e., they must be able to dictate that all their data be permanently erased.
Good luck with that!
Note this from the JW.org website regarding data collection and retention:
YOUR RIGHTS: The religious organization has an interest in permanently maintaining data regarding an individual’s status as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Deleting such information would unduly infringe on the organization’s religious beliefs and practices. - [Emphasis added]
Source: Global Policy Personal Data - Updated April 1, 2018
Isn’t it ironic—in an Orwellian sort of way—that the WTBTS’s stated policy that they can and probably will ignore written, legitimate requests to delete personal data is listed in a section of their policy entitled: “Your Rights”?
Let’s translate the doublespeak into plain English: when it comes to the WTBTS and “your rights,” you have none.
Let’s review: It’s a cult!
Right! Actually, someone should begin a useful post where we can collate JW "double-speak" phrases - this may help the inexperienced to truly 'read between the lines' when trying to unravel their literature. Example:
- "faithful slave" (Your masters and overlords)
- "encourage" (to force, bully, or beat into feeling of low self-worth)
- "your rights" (_BLANK_) <<< accompanied by stifled evil snigger...
this form is just a joke comparing to what one should sign to participate in KH building - there you actually are expected to excuse any damage to your health/life without any compensation from the BORG. And the risk of being injured during the construction process is pretty high, especially given the safety rules not being that perfectly followed - contrary to the jw myth about that.
I've been rehearsing in my head how I'm gonna say no - and as always the Fall Guy's idea is really top notch. That is my favoured plan.
But ... I do like Beth Sarim's "keep forgetting" - I don't do passive-aggressive very often as I wear my heart on my sleeve and give both barrels when I really shouldn't.
But that would be so delicious - "irritating the glorious" ones ad infinitum.

I'm like that all the time when people are overly ''persistant'', 'demanding''. Playing the ''forgetful card'' or ''lots on my mind''. Just play with them and say to them ''my forgetfulness is even annoying me''', ''stupid me, always forgetting about stuff''. Over time people just won't bother with you anymore.
yes, it might even irritate the ''glorious ones''. But, here's the thing. After a few tries they might try harder and harder, until that's when they give-up.
