Those are likely people using them for mountain biking. They are complete crap as a real mountain bike fork but they will work great on a commuter if you want something to take the edge off of things like potholes. If it wears out you will likely be just as happy with a rigid fork but most lower end forks like yours take a couple thousand miles at least to really wear out on a commuter.
