I don't know... It'd have to be a pretty educated (i.e. well-programmed) bot to come up with the posts that he does. Smells more like a troll to me.
Either way, I don't think replying to each of his posts and complaining about it will do much good. Just report (I already have) and ignore.

I'm thinking it's a bot with pre-written messages made by the creator and the bot goes into different areas based off the titles and makes posts that it's been told to make.

Cause sometimes you can see how a loose connection was made but it makes no sense in context. I don't really know what its goal is but that's what it feels like to me. Also I'm only replying to them all cause I feel so annoyed by it and it's driving me crazy and I do partly enjoy pointing out why it makes no sense. It's even worse when some people reply to it acting like it's being genuine.

You know what they say about feeding the troll... I don't know whether trolls care at all what kind of food they can get their paws on (i.e. anger or genuine replies) :P.

But that only applies under my assumption that we are dealing with a troll here, of course.

Sorry, I didn't bring my troll treats with me today. But I bet you'll feed on this reply, in any case. You ravenous jester, you.

I really doubt it, there’s nothing to get out of this, even given my kind of replies. There’s no intstigating and a troll wouldn’t be so obvious as to make posts that have NOTHING to do with the threads in some cases and thus giving itself up way too much.
