As we all know the fantasy spells will not work, but since they don't how comes none of the staff remove them? I know users are given the freedom to post whatever they wish, but still it would put more emphasis on people that are repeating the same thing over and over about unrealistic expectations.

This has been asked and answered so many times.
The fluff, fake, trick, and unrealistic spells are left for several reasons. For one, it is a way to show types of things which do not work.
Additionally, it helps draw traffic to the site. Ad revenue is what keeps the forums online. There are a lot of people who see depictions of magic, sorcery, witchcraft, etc., online, and seek better answers than some obviously fakes YouTube video. A web search will often land people in the spells section on this site.
One benefit of this traffic drawn to the site is that there are those who will stick around, and start learning. Leaving fake spells up is a viable method of drawing in people who will potentially want to learn the real side of what they are curious about.
