Humiliation Has A Price

eBay is making industry news this week for dumping Goodby Silverstein + Partners and calling them a “vendor” in the process, quite possibly a first for GSP. But Adpulp is more interested in the seedier side of eBay.
According to Local6.com, a Knoxville, TN woman has auctioned off her last name on eBay for $15,199. The winning bidder is GoldenPalace.com, an internet gambling site. From now on the woman will be known as Terri GoldenPalace.com.
