This made me laugh, it sounds like a lad wrote it! The item is supposed to be in Italy, so I will forgive the poor english, but not :

Some Ebay item descriptions can be good for a laugh too. For example, some of the terms on the dvd listings include:
"Fan made" - copied from my old video/tape recordings,
"sourced from the public domain" - I downloaded it,
"video transfer" - I copied my video to dvd.

"Not an official release" is another good one too.

Modality, resp. the vernacular equivalent, is a perfectly normal word in Italian, French, German ...

Nothing strange about that at all.

I was just going to mention that, "modalità" is a widely used and perfectly acceptable term.

False friends are pairs of words in two languages (or letters in two alphabets) that look and/or sound similar, but differ in meaning. Both false friends and false cognates can cause difficulty for students learning a foreign language, particularly one that is related to their native language, because the students are likely to misidentify the words due to language interference.

Nothing interesting here.

The person has a 100% positive feedback rating on nearly 500 transactions.

English is clearly not their first language and the flashy 1997 graphics suck, but hey, that isn't a crime yet is it?

It must be a scam. There's no RSOT.
