    I dont know if any of you have noticed this, but the watchtower library is now available online:

    http://wol.jw.org

    Notice it only contain a subset of all publications, for instance the watchtower only goes back to year 2000.

    I wonder if the latest disc version only goes back to 2000 too.

    Looks like the search function is doctored so as to present articles and data that "worldly" people may look for in a favourable light. They basically quotemine their own articles... I mean.. why notm they are so good at it !

    Search "higher education"

    The top result takes the only positive paragraph and a half out of the whole article, despite that whole article being FULL of those two words and slating education all the way through it.

    The amount of effort they put into being so sneaky must mean so many people in bethel struggle to sleep! ( I mean the young kids that know how to make a search do that, not the GB who snooze like a baby!)

    I'm sure the whole thing has been "sanitized" for their protection, removing the bits that don't agree with "present truth."

    It's typical of search engines to only show the first instances in a search results summary. This is not evidence of any attempt to censor the results.

    It is very unlikely that the search engine is filtered to block certain results; on cursory examination, there is no attempt at all to do so. Nor does the search engine on the Watchtower Library CD do any such filtering. The Watchtower Publications Index is sometimes a bit selective, but it is the same in the print and digital versions.

    It is interesting that the online library only goes back to 2000 though. I wonder if they are still going to produce the annual Watchtower Library CD.
