This is not an introduction to sociology, just typing without much reflection.
Do you think the wt would survive if they did not shun or ignore "apostates" (or anyone who does not follow the rules), be realistic, jw org is still an small group with survival instincts..
Besides ignoring, is a very tipical human trick anyway, or do you think you could be accepted in any private club you want to? ( just and an 'example')
I ignore beggars many times as i think they should do better.
Even when people smile they may be ignoring in a polite way. Dont you ignore people?
If so WHAT ARE you motives?
