Ah that makes a lot of sense since they have shifted to selling "Search Engine Optomiszation" anyways so all they care about is that the keywords their john pays them to use and their url are up and somewhere google-indexed. If that includes some sites user profiles, that's a pretty sneaky way to do it without getting noticed as quickly.

Thankful the staff here manage to keep it under control without having to use the robots.txt exception for the whole forums. That can help a lot, but it's kind of convenient not having it.
