PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee a reply to each and every email we receive, simply because we are a relatively small team, and answering too many emails would limit our ability to create the content that makes our website such a successful and valued resource. However, if you do choose to email us, we will try to reply depending on the urgency. At the very least we guarantee you any correspondence will be treated with utmost confidentiality.
Spam rejections / comments pending moderation
If your comment is held for moderation and you genuinely believe you have said nothing untoward, please understand we still appreciate your comment and there is no malice intended on our part. Likely our spam filter (which shields us from an unending torrent of undesirable comments) has detected something fairly innocuous about your comment that it associates with spam. Please be assured we will clear your comment from the “pending” list as quickly as we can, and in the meantime we appreciate your patience, understanding and cooperation.
In the meantime, here are some basic pointers on making sure comments don’t get flagged:
- Make sure you are posting from a private IP address, since public internet IPs (such as in internet cafés) tend to get blocked by default
- Check to make sure your comment has no more than two URL links
- Try to avoid using too many non-letter characters (e.g. &$%*^), and limit your use of capital letters to the normal rules of grammar
If you are still unable to post, please contact the team at the email address above, and we will try to fix the problem for you.
If you are struggling with depression…
Occasionally we receive emails to JWsurvey from people in need of advice with stress and personal problems caused by the organization – particularly the effects of shunning and pressure from JW friends, family or elders.
Ultimately we hope to expand our team so that such cries for help can receive the attention they deserve. In the meantime, we can only do our best to respond as we are able. But if you are in urgent need of support, here are a few resources we can recommend:
Faith to Faithless is a volunteer-run organization dedicated to helping people from a variety of harmful, threatening religions find their way to freedom. It is led by Imtiaz Shams who featured in the documentary video Leaving Islam.
The Freedom of Mind Resource Center has been set up by cult expert Steven Hassan, author of Combating Cult Mind Control, to provide consulting and coaching services to people leaving cults or those with family members inside cults.
AAWA.co was set up in 2013 to raise awareness of Watchtower abuse and assist those in need of support and recovery. AAWA’s President and Director of Support Services Lee Marsh can be contacted directly by email to email@example.com (please do not contact Lee ragarding JWsurvey-related requests).
