Recurrent observation

Not sure if this is really a problem, but this observation keeps coming up in my unread list, up to several times a day. Twice it has had strange comments, possibly in Greek, from new members with possibly dodgy profiles. I might be being overly suspicious, but I have reported the comments as inappropriate and they have disappeared. Anybody know what's going on? Perhaps BobtheBirder can explain and it's all innocent?

The comments I saw ...

... were in Cyrillic script, and Google Translate identified the language as Russian. The text was innocuous, but completely out of context.

They also disappeared when I reported them.

My suspicion would be spammers testing the water.
