We’d love to hear your questions and comments, and can accept them on almost every page. Comments will appear at the bottom of the that page within minutes or a coupe of hours at the most. Anyone who wishes, may make a comment, ask a question, or respond to existing ones with their own.
If you are trying to reach someone who has contributed their experience, your comment or question will be forwarded to them. Most contributors do not have their contact information on the page, although we should be able to send your comment to them via email. In such cases leave your correct email on your request in the comment form. This way it won’t show up in the comment itself, for everyone else to see, but we will still see it and be able to forward it to the right party.
Also, links to some of the most recent comments or so will show up in column just to the right of most pages, including the “home” page if you scroll down past the featured posts. Many of the comments are requests for information or personal contact information for persons associated with the site. We respond to these as soon as possible, but we delete them after their purpose has been served.
In the future we may link to a page that supports discussions in a better format. In the meantime, there are many good forums where JWs and ex-JWs have had good success getting their questions and issues answered.
JW.org does not have a forum, and we doubt it ever will.
- http://www.jw-archive.org/ is more JW-friendly but hit-and-miss on finding answers
- http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/ is more non-JW-friendly. It is very large and more likely to provide a more comprehensive answer to any issue.
- If your question relates to more personal difficulties as a JW or ex-JW, then we’d recommend https://www.jehovahswitnessrecovery.com/forum/index.php or http://exjehovahswitnessforum.yuku.com/
- If you feel pressured to be baptized, or believe teachings that don’t make much sense to you, then http://www.jwfacts.com is an excellent site to start a more informed study of many JW-related subjects. This can include pressure to conform to a lifestyle that denigrates higher education, denigrates family connections, promotes shunning, and unfair judgment of non-JWs. There are many great sites for such topics.
- If you are concerned about more specific topics such as the Watch Tower’s medical blood policy we encourage you to visit ajwrb.org or marvinshilmer.blogspot.com .
- If you wish to comment or find support about abuse-related issues specifically you could probably try: http://jwstrugglehelpforjehovahswitnesses.yuku.com/ or use http://aawa.co/ or http://www.silentlambs.org/ to learn about these support issues. If you have personally suffered, do not rely solely on information or even contacts you meet online. Seek professional help and support.
