Why do people do this? Is it some twisted, perverted sense of fun, dubious fame, or just trying to spoil the world for the rest of us?

The simple answer is money.
They get paid to spam Forums with links to commercial websites.
If you hit the link, even just to check if it's spam, the site's 'hit count' goes up placing it higher on any Google Search metrics. Therefore the site appears more popular than it actually is.

How many people actually buy anything from spammed sites I couldn't tell you. I don't.

 The  artificially   raised count can be used to sell advertising  and other dubious profit making exercises.
