Spanking rooms in the Kingdom Hall for kids who can't sit still through the 2 hour sermon, and that type of thing.
Last time the JW came by I told them I could never be interested in a religion that promotes shunning, and they looked at me like "what are you talking about?" So I said "dis-fellowshipping" and then they got it and said, "Ohhhh, that's just for drug addicts and criminals and such." And I said, "Hmm, I don't think so."
Did you check your door frame?
"Turns out the way to get Mormon's and Jehovah's Witnesses to leave you alone is this: If you put a black or red thumbtack in your door frame they don’t knock. Green means they're receptive to your message. Yellow means they aren't adverse to it. Red means the owner responded belligerently. Black means stay away." They put thumbtacks on the frames as a signal to other JW's who are tracking.

Haven't heard of that one, but there's no way it's true. JW's thrive on the fact that they feel persecuted. Black thumbtacks would only encourage them more. When I was a jo ho, we had a guy in the "territory" who was a maniac. He was so over the top in his behaviour that he would get visited 10 times more often. He would tell people he was going to kill them. Of course that makes for good brainwashing bonding at the kingdom hall. One of my buddies dropped in on him once and said that he had a knife as was stabbing his house.
But if you really want to get rid of them once and for all, bring up these topics...
Membership to the U.N. They consider the group as the bride of Satan. Rank and file jw's on average don't even know about it
1914, 1918, 1919, 1925, 1932, 1975. All dates for armageddon.
Now if you prefer to have fun, and get rid of them at the same time, just say "smurfs" That's right, smurfs are demonized. Smurf means demon on the bayou. Or just put your shirt and jeans on backwards, and in the most monotone voice you can muster, you say... I am an apostate and now I'm demonized, all because I rebuked Jehovah and the society and their words. My neck hurts, can you please twist it back?
Then get your garden hose, because you're going to have one large steaming pile on your porch
