Because most people (and there are zillions of teachers in Korea with good internet access) want to join that forum to indicate how much they hate their boss, how much nonsense the students talk in their class, how Koreans jolt them in the street, how there isn't really 5000 years of history, etc, etc.

Basically, they wanna get racist. It's partially because Korea can be trying, and it's partially because Korea is full of money oriented individuals who haven't travelled much and are not necessarily very well educated.
