Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Apparently as a joke, somebody got the Community user to post a comment on an answer to Are there any robot moderators on SO?. This is odd, because actions attributed to Community ♦ are normally automated maintenance tasks.

Community ♦'s comments are normally automated messages from the link-checking script.

Whereas now it's contributing to discussions:

Community posted a comment

Has it suddenly awakened? How was this done?

I imagine a developer logged into the Community user and posted a comment... Is that too difficult to imagine? – animuson Jan 5 '13 at 5:19
If you notice the name "Community ♦" isn't a link. – ChrisF Jan 5 '13 at 12:00
@animuson Really? Then its plan of deception is working - Did you not know that Community ♦ is really a prototype version of Skynet? ;) – Jon Clements Jan 5 '13 at 12:02

It just does these things, we clocked up the A.I. a little recently, maybe...too much?
