The specific post you mention has been rather common over the years on ATS. It always takes the form of " I have secret knowledge of X given to me
by Y regarding Z." Another variant is, "I am a (alien, migrated soul, interdimensional being) and can give you answers to your deepest questions."
The reason why they get a lot of hits, in my opinion, is that people: immediately issue skeptical replies, play along with them, or are overly
credulous in accepting what they say.
