    It's going to be harder for them (us) to hide magazines once the "Awake" magazine goes to monthly printing.

    Evilforce and I must have been thinking about it at the same time. (Evil Force 1 - IBAT 0)

    We used that type approach during the yearly tract campaigns. The beat goes on.


    "They": believe they're gliding down the highway,

    when in fact they're slip-sliding away".

    If the preferred mag on top is the awake! and they are cutting the issues in half, the salespeople will need to order twice as many to fill the sneak placement.
    Then we'll be hearing about how the awake sales have doubled !!

    I love that stamp idea.

    Maybe they have just run out of drivel to print.....

    Maybe they could turn the Asleep into a better magazine.... like actually print something of interest to people's busy, full lives.

    What has their official "reason for godly" change been on the Awake anyway??? Why would they drop it? I assume it's a financial incentive, less writers, less paper & ink, etc... etc... But aren't they cutting off their own money supply by Jo Ho's not ordering as many Awake's and "donating" to cover their magazine expense???

    Funnny, I was usually more comfortable placing the Watchtower than the Awake. I figured, I'm going to people's houses to talk to them about religion. Why the hell would I be going to their houses to talk to them about fear of flying, or pornography addiction, or the great tufted titmouse?

    I hope your hubby realizes that now that he's accepted the mags once... the "sisters" will keep coming back like a bad rash.

    Now is a good time to put up a large sign outside the office that says


    Next time they show up he can point out the sign and say "Sorry, company policy."

    BTW... the sheer laziness of the approach that they took has me appalled. Whatever happened to

    We're Jehovah's Witnesses! We Speak Out In Fearlessness!


  • EvilForce

    Well Scully,

    As a 12 year old boy knocking on my school mates doors I figured was fearless enough to put the Asleep magazine on top.

    Besides I never minded reading the Asleep magazine as a kid, the WishTower was dull as dirt. Still is.

    Julia made the observation that the JWs must be having a hard time placing literature if they have to hide who they are and hid the more "boring" magazine.

    I think your friend Julia hit the nail on the head. When I wasn't here last week, JWs called on my wife; she took the mag (because she wants to help me set them up for a good ol' fashioned a$$ whooping). Anyway, it turns out that there was a Asleep! hidden inside the WitchPower. (surpisingly, the Witchpower had the more interesting cover).

    This is so true. Several weekends ago, the JWs hit our house...not once did they say what religion they were affiliated with. I think they said, "Were out in our bible education work today." Bible education? LOLOL! More like propaganda to me.

    JW's are like Scamway....

    Never really say what or who they are since most people have heard of them.
