    Fortunately, the FBI doesn't have any terrorism or crime to worry about , so they'll be glad to get on this .

    Yep, it's been happening to USA TODAY's FB page for more than a month or so. They just finally realized that now. The comment section is like a South Asia chat room filled with bots.

    I really don't get why they would use fake Indian accounts when the demographics of USA Today are pretty much all people in the US. I've seen this on some other sites, its so crazy. It doesn't take that much effort to find what kind of nationality you need your accounts to be when spamming a particular site.
