Copying other people's threads

Having recently been a victim of this (& it's the sixth time it's happened to me) I was wondering what was the point of copying posts word for word of previous posts by different members? I guess it's some kinda bot and they're trying to advertise something?

Any ideas?

Oh no. Would suggest to report it to the mods.

Meera, the thread concerned has been deleted. I was wondering why people do it in general.

I think sometimes they do it to have a post that looks genuine, and then they later (sometimes weeks/months later) go back to edit the posts and put in spammy links etc.
