It's probably all automated, seems like once it selects a thread it will always return to it in the future.

Unlikely. Who really knows what metric it goes by. Likely just whatever comes up in it's search.
I will say that the spam situation is a lot better these days. There are times now that we even go multiple days without a single spam post. There has been a slight uptick over the past couple days, they probably got in a new batch of IPs, but once they blow through those we'll likely be back to seeing less and less of them.
