    I had been on this forum for a few months when Simon announced it was closing. I was isolated, vulnerable and terrified. Moxie started JWR and it was a real haven for me. Not least because there was a members only section which felt secure because people weren't immediately granted entry. It was a safe place and I was very grateful for it.

    Now imagine how all the others feel being kicked out of their safe haven that was JWR.

    Hello! Glad to see everyone from JWR finding their place on the various forums.

    We've seen an uptick of new members over at the EXJW sub-reddit as well. Link

    I like both forums, although I try to save my swearing for reddit.

    Does anyone know if the old JWR data is archived anywhere? We could find a way to keep it accessible, if only in "read only" form. From the Google cache I see there were at least:

    Which is why I said it. Don't think for one minute that I don't get that and didn't argue the point.

    However being part of the moderator team I also had first hand experience of the workload generated by a small minority who caused disruption on the forum. I can understand why Rifter came to the decision he did about the way to close the forum even if I didn't agree with it.
