I am going to say just because it's simple business.
From a hoax standpoint, them threads gets massive views. It keeps the viewers coming back. Look how easy it is, to create an account on ATS. No
captcha, no e-mail validation, nothing. This in turn, gets you massive amounts of sign-ups, which could be a bot or a person creating 20 accounts.
More viewers, more advertising money, better page rank.
