Making money off the Marching Morons

In Online Auctions, Misspelling in Ads Often Spells Cash

In case you don’t have a New York Times free registration (or don’t know one of the many fake ones floating around there), this article describes people who make good money off of eBay by looking for articles that are going for way less than they’re worth because the seller can’t spell well enough to be found by buyers. It also includes the advice that sometimes it’s the buyers who can’t spell worth a shit, so you should probably include alternate spellings in your listing so the buyers can find you.

You gotta love free enterprise, especially when it’s crafty people getting rich off of the idiots of the world.
