The Spambots Are Getting Smarter

I'm sure you all are aware of those comments on Youtube... You know, the ones that are like "Click this link for free stuff" or "Get free things by clicking on this link!" Yes they are very annoying. A few days ago a comment chain was posted in the official Star Wars 7 trailer, that went something like this:

It looks like a normal conversation right? Well, the same comment chain, with the SAME profiles, was posted in the Pan trailer, with some of the words being different. Proof in video below.

So there you go. Just a warning to the unsuspecting. The spam wars have begun.

I feel incredibly sorry for the poor souls who fall for this sorta stuff. I mean, a leaked version of one of the most under-wraps movies of the past decade, a year before the film is released? Come on!

Spambots.... Smarter? I can proove that. The amount of spambot accounts created on the wiki I contribute to is amazing.

You can instantly tell that theyre spambots, but I'm not allowed to block them until they actually spam frowning

And after you do report/block them they still show up.

Where did you find that image?

I've seen these chains on most cinematic youtube movie trailers.

It always seemed really odd to me.
It's a bit scary that spambots are actually getting better at simulating discussion,
what's next?
