The new LJ bot army

My last post drew interestingly non-specific replies from two new LJ users: fulviaituv and fotinasusid.

I've given them 12 hours to prove their humanity, and then plan to delete their comments. What I can't puzzle out - and what prompts my asking people now - is what the bots hope to achieve? I don't see any hidden links that would add Google juice, which used to be the goal.

(I originally wrote this as a reply to someone else's journal, when she got a similarly vague reply from portiearo, and then decided I wanted to post about it here.)

It's a bot. It's part of some spamming effort, although it's hard to say what they'll gain from this particular trick.
