    Probable explanation is SEO (search engine optimization), by getting links to certain sites posted here, and thus increasing their ranking on Google or other searches.

    •  It's that profitable? (0+ / 0-)

      For companies that require human teams to break captcha, you'd think they'd need a little more return than marginal, very brief search engine manipulation before their accounts are all wiped out.

        •  Sites must be randomly targeted then (0+ / 0-)

          or subcontracted, because link-bot content would be gone pretty quickly here.  They must not be very familiar with the site.

            But those who seem to know indicate it wouldn't require posting in comments, just a link in their profile. Someone indicated the usual modus would be a flood of users, later updated with selected site links. Some links started to appear earlier on, but most recent ones don't have any. Don't know if that is the spammers not having gotten around to it yet, or our vigilant site techs preventing them from doing so.
