These quite harmless yet annoying Spam Bots run a specific pattern, pretty much like the pattern of pickpocketing. When there is a lot of activity due to an upcoming holiday - these trolls also increase their activity. At least this is my experience in other .SE sites. We'll see if these things won't disappear by them selves in the beginning of next year. ...


The spambots seem to target a particular URL, so I am guessing somebody finds a target edit URL and adds to the list of sites to be a damn nuisance on. Locking the post in question seems to have stopped it in the two cases where I tried this, although it could just be coincidence.
