The past few days, as the US presidential race draws near, we've seen a new form of spam: Political bots. They appear to seek out threads with "Romney + Obama" and then post highly generic political posts with links. They never respond to any discussion and they all seem to originate from the same Washington DC IP (18.104.22.168 pool-96-255-23-191.washdc.fios.verizon.net) but under several different user names (many of which have already been deleted). Anyone else seeing this?
