If by "fake" you mean not the same intent and intensity as a realistic fight on the street, then yes it's fake because its training.

A recent poll revealled that 87.5% of people who quote statistics are 100% in need of proffesional help, this same poll also revealled that people who conduct polls are also 97.5% suspect and should be avoided at all costs

Ahem, if I may amend this to the more correct "Lies, damned lies, and statistics plus many years of gainful employment". To that end, here are more of the "secret statistics of aikiweb threads"

63.91% of all humour threads get serious answers
25.6% of all serious threads become humorous despite themselves
89% of dojos practiced at by a thread starter do the one true aikido while over 200% of all dojos mentioned in passing fail the aikido litmus test
39% of people prefer jo to bokken, especially in the new minty wood flavour.
