I was VERY VERY VERY upset to read this morning that William M. will be leaving us!
This petition is to Gather and everyone who wants William M. to stay should "sign" thier name in the comment section.
William M. has been nothing but friendly to everyone on this site and there is no reason he should leave because he posted jokes from his e-mail, WHICH HE CLEARLY STATED WERE NOT HIS OWN WORK. I am guily of the same thing, as are MANY MANY people here on Gather. He cheers us up in the morning with his good, clean jokes, and never has anything mean or nasty to say to ANYBODY. Maybe Gather should look into getting rid of the people who make Gather miserable, like those who leave nasty comments or those who rate everyone's article poorly without even leaving a comment to accompany the poor rating.
All of those who do not want William M. to leave, and think that there should be an apology from Gather, please "sign" you name in a comment below.
I also encourage people to post thier e-mail forwards they'd like to share and make sure to clearly state it is not thier work. This is like a Gather sit-in!
