Reading through spam messages on one of our wordpress sites, and all the spam messages are so positive!
it's just bots saying "thank you, great article", and "amazing read, thank you for your content". It's like people invent these bots to improve your mood or something :D

@vancha I wonder if they can edit them afterwards. Then they could insert spam there after half a year or so, when everybody except search engines has forgotten and won't re-check.

@vancha Also, maybe they have some links in their profiles somwhere...

@exalm yeah some do, but comments aren't visible anywhere on the site. So real people don't comment anyway :)
