If you have something printed by the Watchtower Society that outright forbids it, by all means change it.  When I was studying ~5 years ago, the elders told me that it wasn't forbidden, but that it was strongly discouraged because they felt that the blood was unsafe if stored.  They had some kind of conspiracy theory that the doctors would swap it with someone else's so as to force you t sin.  The Watchtower allows elders to disfellowship without disclosing the reasons, so they pretty much will vary from Kingdom Hall to Kingdom Hall.  They use the magazines and a centralized system to claim homogeneity throughout, but the local elders definitely reign supreme (so long as they obey the big bosses).

Footnotes / References

There doesn't seem to be a footnote / reference system like on Wikipedia. Am I missing it or does it not exist?

Example entry:

I am sam.<ref>Theodor Seuss Geisel, [http://seuss.com/eggsham.html Green Eggs and Ham] (1960)</ref>

Example resulting page:

I am sam.[1]

References

  1. ^ Theodor Seuss Geisel, Green Eggs and Ham (1960)
