Other than being a ghost town, why the rip?

This. Has Clay posted ANYTHING at all confirming the demise (or whatever) of GP? Or are people just speculating based on the cancellations of premiums? Admittedly I haven't been there in a while, BUT - it was GP that connected me to this crazy community of artists and collectors at the turn of the century...sad day if the site is, in fact, no longer accepting updates and has been laid to rest.

For some reason the old site loads sometimes or the new site.

But here Clay says why http://gigposterscom.wix.com/gigposters#!faq/ccjp

sad to see the demise of GP...bought a few prints there(when I couldn't find them here or the bay), as well as made a few friends on that site too

I am happy to say that I first stumbled upon EB. However GP was a great site to see so many obscure posters.
