An era in the ex-jw history is over. Kent Steinhaug's site http://watchtower.observer.org is being shut down.
It was the first of it's kind, and to this day probably still the largest anti WT site on the net.
Kent had for many years a gentleman's agreement with the guy's that developed and marketed the software
that the site is built on. It is software that newspapers use for their net papers. The software became a success
and was sold to a Danish corporation by the name Saxotech. Anyway, after James Penton's last book came out
where the watchtower.observer site is mentioned and all the documentation that exist on that site, Brooklyn apparently
has got a new bout of panic and the in house attorny at the Norwegian branch office has written to the new owner
Saxotech, and complained and they have panicked and are taking the site down. The WT has done this before and
even the police has dismissed the case.
Saxotech has suddenly become very businesslike and started to demand a $1000 a month for keeping the site up and Kent
isn't able to pay that kind of money. So most likely the site is history.
