The spam comments I get on here are pretty bad. I moderate so they don’t get through, but many of them are just so bad as to be pointless to begin with. I post one on here once in a while to make fun of it, the links (which are the only thing they want to get on here) removed of course. Each time I do that, something that is clearly a spam account ends up liking it (getloans688856448 HAS to be a spam account).
Am I accidentally tripping some bot-like algorithm? Is it programmed to just like the words used in the comment even without the links being present? Or, are there higher classes of spammers who scoff at the worse ones. Were they appreciating my denigration of their less capable competitors? It could even be that the words themselves somehow still function for their spam even without the links and I’m helping them regardless thinking that I am not. Perhaps the proliferation of the word pattern itself does them good and they are happy I fell for that.
I just don’t know. It baffles me.
