"That is called keyword spamming and is supposedly not allowed by ebay."

This is, or can be, a legitimate marketing device to help customers and sellers find/sell obscure plants. For example, if I want to sell Synandrospadix vermitoxicus but I suspect most of the people who might want to buy it are not familiar with this name-- and would certainly not search "Synandrospadix"-- then "Amorphophallus" or "Arisaema" can be listed in the entry line. In my view this is a plant affiliation prompt and not a deceit.
