Strange Edits from Bot (in CS bios)

Daniel Moyer
Hi all,

Sorry, I didn't know where to raise this issue. I was recently reading
about some CS theory topics, and came across this page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ming_Li&oldid=882127233

Clearly something weird is going on. Going into the edits, I found
that the strange parts about a cat from Groningen are from this bot:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:KolbertBot

Does anyone know what's up with this?

Sorry if this is the wrong venue, but I thought people might be
familiar with this bot or its owner.

Thanks,
Daniel

Ah, apologies, it's not that bot that's to blame, I misread the
revision history. Just another graffiti case, sorry about that.

From this user, not the bot:
