I think, to be fair, Gravatars were looking like they might take off once (about 10 years ago maybe). It was possible to create (and maintain) one or more avatars and use them at various sites (eg Fastmail, and I think they worked with Yahoo for a while). It seemed like a good idea at the time.

The reason they're associated with Wordpress is because Wordpress later bought the concept and the site.

After that Gravatars seemed to languish.

I can't speak for Fastmail, but I suspect that after they'd set up the Gravatar thing they've focussed on other priorities.
