Article on spam please?

There are frequently a lot of spam posts in the comments section, and normally I just try to ignore them as a minor nuisance. However, I'd be interested to know a little more from The Verge on how these spamming campaigns actually work.

On the Amazon deforestation article I found two spam posts that either mentioned the title of the article, or that stole a line from one post above, and I don't remember them doing that before.

If these were automatically generated, I'd be interested to know more about the tricks being used to disguise these things as genuine comments, as they seem to be getting more sophisticated now.

Would anyone else want an article like this?
