You sure this isn't just a dead forum that was once active? One of the forums I frequent went without mods for a while because it was bought by an 'e-assets' company (vom). In that time, it was flooded with bots copying >reddit posts and posting them into threads, then later coming back and editing links into the posts.One of the things that have bothered me for a while now, are artificial forums.
I can't find an example to save my life now, but I bet some of you already came in contact of what I am talking about: it's basically a forum, like Agora, but where ALL the threads and posts are fake, in the sense that they are always copied from somewhere else, like a 4shits thread.
The architecture of the site differs from a imageboard, because they have users and post counters, threads, forums and subforums, but the content is 100% artificial.
I don't know why someone would make something like that, and what they stand to gain from it, but there are hundreds of sites like that and it unnerves me.
If the forum hadn't been active it would have been flooded with that shit in short order.
