I often see spam in the local trulia forum as well. Have gotten one lead from there, but they ran away as soon as I presented them with a buyer-broker agreement (and then came back later to ask for advice about their chosen agent's ineptitude).
I'm fortunate enough to have friends who regularly make such comments.... I've realized that it doesn't much matter. If anything, it offers an opportunity to explain my valuation and discuss positive attributes of the home in question.
Both Trulia and Zillow have open forums on their site. Voices has amassed nearly 500,000 posts. It would seem to me that they have proven the model of whether or not consumers would want to publicly post questions.
