It's working, people! See this e-mail from eBay about ads on

by CynthiaYockey on June 16, 2009

I just checked my inbox and found the e-mail below from a representative of eBay. I have put all my work so far into stirring up the resistance and writing my “Fire David Letterman” Kit. I never e-mailed eBay. I plan to work on the same sponsors targeted by HillBuzz because coordinating our efforts will have more impact. However, since eBay’s representative made the effort to contact me, I feel encouraged that our pressure on sponsors is being felt and that we can, indeed, get David Letterman fired. Here is the e-mail from eBay:

Dear Ms. Yockey,

I am sending the following letter on behalf of eBay Inc. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Dear Ms. Yockey,

I would like to inform you that eBay has no current advertising affiliation with the CBS Late Show with David Letterman. As part of eBay’s regular online advertising, some eBay ads may have appeared on

These ads do not indicate eBay’s support for particular shows, nor do they suggest support for the views expressed by Mr. Letterman.

We appreciate your initiative on these issues, but I assure you that eBay has no affiliation with Mr. Letterman’s show.

I wrote e-mails to Lexus, Embassy Suites (I’m a Hilton Honors regular customer) and Mars Candy and got positive replies from all three. Please provide the guidance and I will take action. If it takes some snail mail, I’m happy to pay the postage.
