Do internet-people spell "whoa" incorrectly on purpose (as "woah"), in the same way people use "teh" and "!!!1!!1" - fake typos used to imply something?

That's really it - I see "woah" way more now that I see "whoa" and it's driving me batty. Is it on purpose (for the most part)?
What do you even call that, when you use "teh" in a post/comment online....?
(Sidenote - I saw "woah" on an electronic, public, magnetic poetry board at SeaTac airport and almost threw a chair at it, ugh, Microsoft!)
