I'm one of earliest adopters of the internet in discovering the real history of the Watchtower. Back then it was the wild wild west with newsgroups being the primary sources of information. Then came Watchtower Observer, Freeminds, and all the other sites that followed JWD was one of the later sites.
I wrote this post circa 1996 that is still relevant for recent exiting JW's
I visit this site about once a year just to skim the current events going on in and out of the Watchtower. I still have friends inside who keep me abreast of the people I used to know and many are no longer JW's.
I'm interested in hearing from the old timers who are still here.
