I've not seen a single post from anybody here who said, "I asked them to NOT COME BACK but they still do." I've seen people say that they put no soliciting signs on the door. Well, guess what? JW's don't solicit. Solicit is to ask for something; beseech for something. http://define.com/Solicit
JW's don't come to the door to ask you for anything, they come to the door to offer you something, free of charge.
Nor do I see any post that says that there was a do not disturb sign on the door, and they still came. I'll reread, but I don't see it.
What I'm telling you is this: This is how it's SUPPOSED to happen. You tell them, I don't want any more visits from this house. And we make a note of that and be sure that everyone knows not to come back to your house. Any other "I'm not interested", "I'm a devoted this or that" is not going to work. Only telling them that you don't want anymore visits is what's going to keep them from knocking on your door.
If telling them that doesn't work (and it's supposed to) then look in your local pages, call the local Kingdom Hall and tell them that you don't want any more visits to your address, and that WILL work, although it's not really supposed to come down to that.
I don't know where you live, thelissa, but you may have to call someone to get them to stop coming. It's really not supposed to be that way, so I'm not sure why you keep getting visits after telling them to stop. But if you call, or either politely explain to the next person that you keep asking for them to stop coming by and they are doing it anyway, I"m betting they'll apologize profusely and take care of the matter. No organization is perfect, and there are blunders and slip ups from time to time. But telling them not to come back the first time is supposed to solve your problem. We have special instructions to make it known to the rest of us if one house doesn't want any visits, and some one drops the ball ever so often. So you may need to be more forceful and open about the fact that you keep telling them to not visit and they keep doing it anyway. I don't think that's a frequent occurrence though.
