What are your thoughts about fake members of a forum?

Do you think fake members can help a starting forum grow?

Or do you find it cheating and wrong to do?

Have you ever used fake members on a forum before?
A lot of people try that. I don't see anything wrong with it as long as you are not scamming anyone.

But my advice is that you will never be serious about getting new members that way.
