Has anybody noticed random posts with random facts?

They seem almost bot-like, the two-three I've seen have 3 posts, and they post random facts. Sorry if you're real people...

How to Fix Rust Spots On a Car

Automatic switch-on when it gets dark

And there were a few about plants a couple days ago and I didn't think again about until tonight. I think we're being botted..

I wasn't exactly sure whether they were trying to be helpful, because one of them posted these different types of planted tanks, which I thought were interesting, and I didn't think that would be the best way to welcome someone if that was their way of introducing themselves ><

Anyways, I'll try to report them in the future, thanks.
