I'd rather fail it than fake it.
Not unrelated to fake user posts is the very widespread use of FAQs. I wouldn’t mind betting that the huge majority are not literally frequently asked questions, but rather imaginary questions used in a way to succinctly provide the most useful information in a convenient and useable format.
