I remember JWs bragging about how they sent mormons and people collecting for charity packing for daring to come to their door! Oh the crazy irony.
Good points sparrowdown and others. What a difference a day makes when I look back at my earlier comments!
I can only agree that a good number of JWs I knew back in the day were tactless and pushy; equally, however, a good number weren't - they were considerate and, if anything, too ready to back off and almost apologize for disturbing householders by door-knocking.
One of the things I resolved never to do as a JW - good little young man that I was - was to push my message on others; I was embarrassed by those tactless brothers and sisters.
That said, now I also concede that sometimes as ex-JWs we've got to seize the moment and speak out and go for it. I just hope it isn't the norm for the OP and others to respond that way - attack is seldom effective in helping people see the error of their ways; more often than not, it simply becomes "evidence" that opposers are hateful and the mind springs shut.
There could be times when the excellent things he's got to say could come over more clearly if he toned it down a bit. Just saying...
