OK maybe not everywhere, but seeing threads offering Gmail invitations at a price over at the Trading Post at SitePoint Forums is new (besides the old news on Gmail invites put up for auction at eBay and also gmail swap).

Someone is even offering a Gmail invite for logo design. Look at these threads all offering Gmail for cash or kind - 1, 2, 3, 4.

And no, I don't have a Gmail account so don't ask me for one. If you want a 2GB email account, try AventureMail.
