It does seem rather odd, and liable to draw unwanted attention. Perhaps the engine searches for topics that are somewhat related to the spam, but hasn’t been coded to make sure those topics are somewhat recent. I’ve noticed they are getting better at being somewhat topical! One of these days they’ll be passing the Turing test.

Speaking of which:
The OpenAI Dota 2 bots just defeated a team of former pros
And it wasn’t even close

[...]What stands out when you watch the matches is the apparent intelligence of the AI’s decisions and the inhuman absence of any indecision. The typical Dota 2 game, even on the professional tier, involves quite a bit of equivocation about whether to engage in a fight, or whether to try and shift it to a more favorable battleground, or to run away from it completely. The OpenAI team just doesn’t need the processing time that humans require, which made its play appear unnatural — but only in the speed and crispness of the decision making, not in the content of those decisions.

The developers of OpenAI noted that the OpenAI Five were losing to amateur players within their team back in May. By June, the AI had matured enough to defeat casual players, and today it’s shown itself capable of overwhelming people who’ve been playing Dota 2 literally since its inception. The next goal for this rapidly evolving AI is to take on the very best Dota 2 players at Valve’s The International 8 later this month. That’s where the best teams will compete for the grand prize of being 2018’s Dota 2 champions, and one of the side shows will be a contest between them and the OpenAI Five.
