wtf spam bot?

So my last entry linking to my [community profile] chocolateboxcomm gift is getting a ridiculous amount of anon (and thus screened) spam bot comments in Japanese. Just that entry. I dutifully deleted and reported 28 since I posted, but it's been getting really annoying, so I disabled all comments to it now. I honestly don't get how the targeting of these spam bots works.

ETA: And now the bots apparently switched to this one. If this continues I will have to disable anon comments. Already have turned on captcha for anon, but apparently that is useless.

ETA2: I had to disable anon comments, after getting another flood of spam comments. Sorry to potential anon commenters, but they seem fairly rare anyway.

What the heck?? I've had very little spambot trouble on DW; I wonder how they found you. (Also this makes me wonder if I turned off anon commenting at some point and just forgot about it. I thought it was on, but maybe not, which I guess would explain it.)
