It's the AP. Being a double edged sword, it gives you a challenge and adds to the fun of using AG, but it attracts spammers looking for five seconds of fame.

Actually people don't only spam for AP. Spam happens in every forum, even those without postcounting.
I assume they do it because they have a stupid sense of humor, likes to get (negative) attention, or just have nothing better to do.

Though of course, on AG, a lot of people spam mainly for AP... Just saying it's not the only reason.

Sorry, but the "why do people spam" question has been asked many times in many places.  I'm sure that there are probably as many reasons as there are spammers.  But the newcomer's forum is not the place for that kind of discussion.
