Missing Center Caps - Why?

I've been watching craigslist for wheels lately and noticed that many of the sets are missing center caps. Why is this? Are center caps prone to flying off with use or are some people just lax and lose them?

I know I kept the centercaps when I sold my old set of rims, and I would have kept the other ones but right before the guy drove off he asked about them so I had to produce them out of the garage for him.

I kept my center caps when I went to the Mickey Thompson Classic II's from the stock and used them on the new wheels. Must be pretty common.

What I'm seeing on CL (quite a bit) is decent looking wheels with 2 or 3 caps missing, so naturally I blow them off and move on. However, I didn't know if it was a common fault of wheels with caps or just defective owners so I thought I'd ask here. I appreciate all your responses and will put a check mark by defective owners...

Thanks guys!
