why do people post their cover letter on an internet forum?

inspired on this thread: Cover Letter Advice Please!

I understand very well that someone is looking for help but why on earth do people post their cover letter on EF? wouldn't they realise that some of the EF members might work for the employer?

I think some people don't realise that this is a fully public forum that can be read by anyone at all who has internet access.
