Those are "bots" - the endless spam posts we get are all done via automation or semi-automation. Also, it's not uncommon from various search engines (not Google, but baidu, yandex, etc.) to hit the site with many, many crawlers at once.

To be honest - this has always been a small, but tight-knit and high quality community. It's always been "quality" vs "quantity".
