This site has been harvesting e-mails from various  blindness mailing lists
and putting them in their invite list. They lost any chance they had of
almost anyone joining by their techniques.   They seem to have started in
August and I received and invitation then.  They'll never get me to their
site because of the methods they use.

Blinknation is a social networking site for the blind. The emails are 
not spam, but the owners of the site are a little overaggressive in 
advertising, which is one of the reasons I have not joined.
