Haloscan bot?

Is it possible to have 'bot' that automatically posts random comments into haloscan? For instance, pick random paragraphs from DU and post them into Haloscan comments? If so, I think that is the most likely explanation for Jean/Julia/BillClinton. This person (or computer) seems to automatically respond to _every_ posting with F9/11, anti-Rovian, evil-genius monkey hysteria. I suppose it's also possible that these posts are by different individuals each parroting the DU's latest rants...

Jean/Julia/BillClinton/whoever you are, I have learned to skip your posts and I never click on the links you provide. If you have real, authentic, homegrown opinions then you should express them yourself (something a 'bot' cannot do) rather than link to others' work.

I look forward to more enlightened and civil discourse.

PS: I apologize for using my 'host' privilege to address a single(?) poster and hope these things won't crop up again.
