Notes:
 
Spambots following this pattern of test edits either create a new talk page or replace an entire section of a talk page with an over-generic message of praise for the associated article, with one misspelled word whose internal letters have been scrambled. If it's a new talk page, the section title is a single "word" with 11 or more random letters of both cases. We currently detect only the new talk page, and we detect it by the section title.
