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?

    If you notice the name "Community ♦" isn't a link.

    @animuson Really? Then its plan of deception is working - Did you not know that Community ♦ is really a prototype version of Skynet? ;) Commented Jan 5, 2013 at 12:02

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