I was just reflecting about this site and it`s influence on me and what I have got out of it and it came to me that whatever subject I bring up , or others bring up , the obvious thing is we engage in discussion .That`s what it`s all about .
However , the feedback we get or the input we give , far outweighs anything we ever achieved going from D2D for the WTB&TS./ WT real Estate Agency /Publishing House .
How many times did you have a meaningful discussion with a person at a door ?, as a JW ? not many I would think.
The majority of times , they were not home or not opening the door to you , so even if you did meet people they were too busy to talk to you or they just were not interested.
Whereas , here on this board you engage with many people from all over the world , and we can discuss a subject as long as we want.until it runs it`s course.
I think anybody who posts here has had far more satisfaction in their interaction with other people on this board than they ever experienced in the D2D work as a JW.
And I hope that people who just lurk here can see the benefits of open discussion in a forum like this without judgement and recriminations that occur in the JW religion for speaking your mind.
