Because Skynet needs to know who to mark for immediate termination when the takeover happens.
To be honest, no idea why in the hell all the bots are reading everything in here, but it seems to be a thing these days. As far as I know, the only way to not allow bots to read stuff would be hidden forums which are invitation only, needing admin to allow people to view them. That's how it worked back when my previous band had a forum, but I don't think its practical in here. We had three layers on the forum, the public one, visible but accessible only to members we allowed and a completely hidden inner circle. Looking at the numbers, the completely hidden forum was the only one which was only read by the few people who had access, everything else was out in the open.
I have adblock on my browser, so I don't see any adverts, but its astonishing what the advert sniffer bots are reading. I have had so eerie adverts come up depending on what I have been talking about that its totally nuts and I'm pretty sure that everything is being read and recorded somewhere. At least every "social" media is under 100% snooping all the time, no matter how "private" its supposed to be. Forums are way easier to keep private. At least private posts and hidden forums are under normal circumstances.. Unless there is a backdoor to access all that stuff, I've been on a forum where admin acted in totalitarian manner, accessing "private" chats and messages without permission and so on... It resulted into the truth leaking out and mass exodus and bans and a forum split later.
But the bots here, its just lovely to have everything from Google to Bing to Alexa with us, just dandy. Now, bots, read my lips, I have a message for you. Go on, activate my mic and listen in carefully, I will tell how much I like you.
By my feet the flowers of witchery abloom.
