JW's are very position minded. Pioneers hang out with each other as do Elders and MS. With all the admonition that they receive about "good spiritual association" it is bound to make cliques etc. How different the examples in the Bible where Jesus talked about helping those spiritual ill..after all those that were healthy did not need him. So in the JW religion if you are "spiritual weak" you get left out where in reality that is where they should be focused. And really who defines who is "spirtiually weak" that always made me laugh. Is it not the cliques themselves that make up who is weak and who is strong. No one really knows what is in the heart of anyone. Position is not the true definition of "spirtually strong" many of us know individuals that have positions with no heart involved in it.
