Well fellow spammers and SEO's you've done it! The following is the most recent update that you will receive if you try to sign up. Congrats they finally came wise to everyone: In order to protect the integrity of our community, Gather has suspended new user registrations until further notice. Existing registered users may continue to use their accounts to post original content and to communicate with other members of our community by signing in here. Non-registered users may also continue to access and read content from all across our site. However, you will not be able to comment on articles or send messages to other users if you don't already have an account.Gather has always been an open community, but people have recently started to take advantage of the platform, and spamming on the site has increased. Trusted members of the community will always be permitted to use our site as it was intended, but until we implement stronger security controls, we will not accept any new members.
