I think it's more of a "throw it against the wall and see what sticks" mentality, mixed with a lot of "you can fool some of the kids all of the time."
But even the kids can spot a shill. A healthy sense of cynicism is really helpful when wading through all of the stuff being thrown at us online, especially when someone poses as an innocent, wide-eyed forum member. "They claim to be the best. Their soundclips and videos look and sound awesome!"
Oh come now!
