I had to move to get away from them, and I'm never being polite and answering the door for them again.. NO I DO NOT WANT ETERNAL LIFE PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE! —CaptainRush

If you really, really, never want to see them again, there are ways - they will "shun" any ex-JWs who have been disfellowshipped (think excommunication) or who have formally left (disassociated). I know, I'm an ex-JW myself. —KevinWeedon


2008-04-28 01:23:09   I decided to allow myself to have a chat with them; seemed nice enough. They keep coming back though. Again. and again. I'm out a lot, so they don't catch me, but by my housemate's last count, they've been here 6 times this week. Gah. —StewartShearer


2008-04-28 22:38:57   They used to come by my place all the time. I used to tell them something different each time. Telling them you eat babies is an effective way to scare them off. —CurlyGirl26


2010-02-03 10:20:02   Oh yay, I just learned that these people do that--the taking down your name and place of residence and visiting repeatedly.  My housemate was too nice to turn them away, so I guess now I have to do it.  Eating babies?  Disfellowshipped?  Very, very gay?  This will be fun... —KayChang


2010-08-18 18:02:16   I left, and they still receive me with warm hand shakes. It isn't a cult...and they go to your door because that is what their doctrine says they should. Don't understand what all the fuss is about. —Markam


2010-11-03 21:48:43   So far, the Witnesses in Davis i've come across are very polite and not the kind who show up too early. I'll pray to that! —MaryCarroll


2011-09-18 21:13:32   A couple of them showed up at my door today. I talked with them for half an hour about theology and eventually they made an excuse to leave while I was still trying to explain that the serpent from Genesis and the angel named Satan from Job are not the same character. Their bizarre literalist interpretation of Revelation and their obsession with the end of the world are annoying, but other than that they seem like polite folks. —BarnabasTruman


2012-01-10 19:20:43   Today two Jehovah's Witnesses - Watch Tower women showed up at our door. They were wearing dark sunglasses and I didn't like that. I knew somebody was coming because the neighbor's dog was barking angrily. ☺ They said (I was just eating and hadn't even finished my bite of food): "Excuse me, I know you are very busy, but can we..." I looked down at their black and old bible saying "The Holy Bible" and said pointing at it: "No, not interested!" They looked rather overwhelmed and left. I felt a little bit guilty, but I know their drill and I think it's totally pointless and I didn't ask for it too. I once talked to Jehovah's Witnesses and found they were totally in the dark and just summing up what they read in the Bible or in their Watch Tower leaflets. I do think it's a cult and I think it shouldn't be allowed for people to try to impose and intrude at one's private home with these things. There is a difference between normal advertisement (which is good and legal) and trying to lay your belief on someone. —ConstantiaOomen


2012-06-10 13:43:01   Has anyone else gotten a creepy hand written letter from these people recently? It was written from a "Malia Hall" with a PO box in Winters. I want to know how they got my name and address but I don't want to engage them in any form of conversation. —MikeyCrews
