The bot generated those threads because I tapped 'Start Thread' from the game page on the Touch Arcade App. It's a feature intended for players to initiate threads for games they are interested that currently have no thread, not a scam.
I did a search through the TA App for 4X to see if I could uncover good 4X games that I haven't come across. It's similar to doing an AppShopper search where you get different results than through the AppStore.
I've found Astra Itinera to be more geared for playing very quick and simple 4X matches while Galactic Dominion has a lot more complexity to it. Astra reminds me of Master of Orion or the first couple Space Empires, streamlined.
My comments are genuine and my nerd love for 4X games shall not be questioned. JK, you should try out generating a new thread through the App, it's pretty easy.
Surprisingly though, Astra Itinera is iPad only but very simple and Galactic Dominion, which is iPhone/iPod Touch is the more immersive game. A bit odd device strategy for both games but hopefully they go universal.
