I think you have a very different definition of what "bootleg" is compared to the rest of us, anon.
That thread is piracy. Shitty piracy, sure, but it's piracy. The storytime threads we have of the PDFs proper also constitute piracy, we are reading a comic we didn't pay for nor acquire legally.
A bootleg, to most, implies the product in question not being made by the official parties. Think mockbusters or knock-off plush toys. A bootleg replicates the real thing, to variying degrees of success (it's a blurry line, because sometimes the unofficial product is just as, if not better than the original, and people gravitate towards it).
