Why Does ebay Attract Bad Spellers?

My spelling and grammar leaves much to be desired, however I do try to get it right, ebay advertisements somehow attract people who are unable to spell at even a basic level. The ad below is particularly bad. It is probably the worst spelling I have ever seen. The title of the ad talks about a motorcycle 'Going Cheep', when I read that I though it may have been spelled that way on purpose to attract attention. Alas not.
