the following was posted on the watchtower observer message board by a first time poster at
it sounds far-fetched to me.

as a complement to my justice series it seems only fitting to have judicial stories told from the perspective of those who have had to sit in the "hot seat" and face the watchtower tribunal of the three stooges ... many, maybe most, elders have never had to face a judicial committee.
were this to have been the case, maybe we would not have the horror stories, but rather more tempered justice among jws.. .
before i was an elder, i too faced the trinity of elders ... and sat in the infamous "hot seat" ... for what?

i was on an elder meeting 1999, when the gb come upp widh harder ruels fore dfd system and even when we can take back peopel.. they say ther that we had ben to soft, and we must think about to keep org clean, and we must also be carefull not to take back peopel to eary, they must show that they realy regret what they done.. i must ask the former elder on this board, if someone here was on that meeting, it was splitt on two days, and the second day we have this new look on dfd system.. i think this was a very bad move, when i hear this , i was sure that this going to give us problem, but when i read here it is much more problem then i was expeckting.. i is realy tragikal that the gb do this and i think it harm us very much, and ofcourse i think it was wrong, and not from jehova, perhaps satans way to destoy, putt in men like wolfs how putt hard ruels in the cong , impossibel to follow, like this , dont talk to you children if they are dfd, who can follow that .

it seems nothing gets the good people in here so upset as lies.
we all seem to be extra sensitive to lies and damned lies because of being victimized by one of the biggest lairs around, the wts.. but have you ever really tested yourself to find out if you are really snow white yourself?
you got the guts to find out?

the elders in most congregations have absolute power, even worse they act without a check to make sure their judgments are correct.even in their worse moments they are "untouchable" in their right wing views.. does anyone have examples of elder abuse and misuse of absolute power.
bearing in mind that they have this power, not by holy spirit, raher by the congregation letting them have it.. has absolute power corrupted the elders?.

there are a lot of interesting obstacles facing the watchtower.. potential lawsuits, legal challenges to the door to door work,.
declining revenues, general loss of zeal, exposure on the internet,.
and loss of publishers in western nations come to mind.. yet, there is no obstacle greater, in my opinion, than the.
