Indeed - exactly so.
It just fills the forum with junk posts (many of them copy-pasted, as you say).
But that’s what these people do: they need to have some credibility before they start selling and spamming whatever it is they’ve come here to sell and spam (and they come here, specifically, to do it because all the other trading forums have moderators who prevent it); so they need to inflate their post-count. And in a largely unmoderated forum, they can do that simply by copy-pasting junk, and making large numbers of fatuous, trite, one-line posts with no real content at all.
It was obvious from the day he arrived here that that was Branco’s plan (just like one or two other people I could name).
The reason these things turn into such problems, here, is that the moderators persistently ignore it, even when it’s pointed out to them. As can be seen, they’re not active members here and are unfamiliar with what’s going on.
I strongly suspect that the forum’s owner [U]genuinely[/U] doesn’t appreciate that that’s why his traffic and participation are [I]declining[/I] at a time when forex-trading itself is booming and those of one or two other trading forums with pro-active moderation are [I]increasing[/I].
