You joined the forum today just to promote Micro Center or this HP laptop model?

Not really that specific if their instructions were like "Search the web for forums discussing these overstocked products, and join the forum to say something about the product and mention Micro Center."

The Micro Center employees I've met wouldn't care enough to do this. Unless he thought he might get a commission out of it, and 1) that seems unlikely 2) an unlikely commission on $184 doesn't seem worth the effort.

But their boss could tell them to do something they don't care about.

The boss isn't just looking at a commission on $184; they're concerned about a stockpile of product that needs to be sold. And the boss isn't personally making the effort to go out on the web and astroturf; he/she has employees for that.
