It makes perfect sense to me.
Somebody looks at his first post, not sure if it's spam, or a helpful suggestion.
Either they decides that, because he have already made 2 posts, he can be trusted as "probably actually being a human" as making multiple posts is not normal behaviors for most spam-bots.
If the person wants to find out more, she might want to check out what his other post is about.
Just reading this post out of context will probably make him seem like a trustworthy person.
That he didn't, in fact, create his own threads in either of the cases makes him even more believable.
...and then, after all the extra work it took to program it, maybe one or two people more will view the link than if it was posted by a regular spam-bot. A great success indeed!
