Advertising in the front page comments?

Some of you guys, who are reading the comment sections of the articles might have seen the following text:

"мy coυѕιɴ ιѕ мαĸιɴɢ $51/нoυr oɴlιɴe. υɴeмployed ғor α coυple oғ yeαrѕ αɴd prevιoυѕ yeαr ѕнe ɢoт α $1З619cнecĸ wιтн oɴlιɴe joв ғor α coυple oғ dαyѕ. ѕee мore αт...💩 💩

It show up more and more lately. Strange is the font which is used.
I've just seen it in the second post of the comments section under the "tA plays Infinity Blade 3" article again.
Anyone knows where this is coming from?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Yeah, ok, thanks.

It appears in quite some postings, btw. Not just that one.
Does it come from different accounts, or just that one?
I can't check anymore because I flagged some of the comments with the ads in.

PS: can you please fix my stupid typo in the thread name? Thx in advance.

And yes, Hodapp or another admin can ban you from the comments section, afaik.
