Looking over the new elders manual-
"(14) Arranging for elders to visit or write a letter to addresses of households that have asked that no further visits be made.—See 23:21."
What is so hard for them to understand that someone is requesting to be a 'do not call'?
How does that conversation go?
Knock,knock- hello, we would like to give you yet another chance to accept jw-ism!
Householder- What the hell? I asked to be put on a do not call list!
jw-well, that request was made to one of our lowly peons and we are ELDERS! we need to hear it ourselves.
Householder- ok, I will tell you in no uncertain terms, stay off my property! now, what happens if some other higher up comes along and he wants to hear it from me too? do I need a restraining order? Perhaps my friends Smith & Wesson need to have a word with you? what does it take to have you leave me alone?
What a way to piss of the general public when they can't even respect a simple request to leave somebody alone.
