Spies on teh forum?

Alright guys, entirely hypothetical here. Say there is a website, one that is somewhat popular. Now let's say this is something like, I dunno.. Neopets..box.. .com? The demographic for this site is obviously young teenage girls, so naturally the forums section is going to be full of young teenage girls. Now say.. the neopets-box.com.. has people curious about what this demographic is interested in, say.. favorite hobbies, websites,.. uh political views? So they join neopets-box and pose as the opposite of the demographic, say.. a a male gamer in his young adulthood. These infultrators 'slyly' gather this information through threads, PMs, etc.

I mean hey, I know I'm paranoid, but it's a possibility right? Nah, who am I kidding.

EDIT: I dunno, move it to community or something. The OP is just about websites and the internet in general.

How could a spy gather intelligence where there is no intelligence?
