So, I went to login to my GAB account this morning, and noticed this:
I cleared my Cache and Cookies and same thing! What gives? So I did some searching and came across other people who have experienced this same issue!
"just signed up and im shadowbanned and started celebrating free speech and uh

"You don't have permission to view this page."
so much for free speech"
censored off gab from r/gab
As you can see, others have ran into this same issue. I also noticed somebody knows Andrew on a personal note and has actually seen this guy acting like a Looney Lefty child, banning and deleting accounts because of views expressed that Andrew did not agree with. This is flat out crazy that somebody who is supposed to be on the side of free speech would act in this manner.
NOTE: After I posted the above Reddit Comment made by XMRbull, the entire embedded comment on my blog post disappeared. Luckily, I still had a window open with the article still viewable. I took a screenshot of the comment and have posted back to replace where the embedded comment was originally.

This is very unfortunate, as GAB could have been a useful tool. But the only real tool turned out to be Andrew Torba, founder of Gab. Andrew is riding the "Free Speech Bandwagon" to promote his platform. But, he is clearly not for free speech at all.
So, if you are expecting to have "FREE SPEECH" on GAB, you can kiss your expectations GOODBYE because GAB does not care about your "Free Speech" as much as Facebook or Twitter. I suggest we tell Mr. Torba what we think about his attempt at blocking free speech.
I will be deleting all links to my GAB account. I will not be returning.
