The fact that your able to (and not afraid to) state your critical view of this online community is part of the answer.
The fact that answers (while maybe disagreeing with your position) are respectful to you, and the willingness to discuss openly, without you being called in the back room and forced to repent and shut up, are another part of the answer.
There may be firm disagreements (with maybe less respectful wordings?) sometimes between atheist and christian exJWs. But the same happens on many discussions between Christian and atheist, regardless of their former affiliation.
