Clever ploy. They are attempting to flood the entire machine by auto-generation of content that mimics legitimate aggregation sites? Perhaps to discredit enemies of an agenda? Just graffiti?

The profile familiar, especially in time of war. And what constitutes war in a time of unprecedented connectivity? A monster of the collective's instinct as modeled in the machine? War is unfriendly activity. Friends are in lieu of war. War often has been and continues to be profitable. Friends, especially when organized can impede that form of profit.
