Anytime there is a Hiro Mashima related news post, please monitor it closely. There is a troll that is almost always guaranteed to appear and wish death threats upon Mashima, and then they spread from there throughout the news page. Also, once you ban one account, they will back with in minutes under a new account with a slight variation on the same name.

I kinda wonder if it's a bot.
The posts seemed to be in order as well as the same messages including odd spaces etc repeated between accounts. Then after a while nuke and start again.

I do think just like the CR points thing in the forum that you shouldn't be able to post on the news articles until some sort of criteria is met. News seems to attract lots of spam every now and then.
Or just disable it and open a forum post for September 5th 2017 news articles discussion.

If you're feeling helpful, whenever you see one of these accounts spreading hate and/or death threats, click on their username to take you to their profile page, then scroll down to just above the footer page section, and click on the "report inappropriate user" link. That will notify the mods to investigate the account, ban (or remove) the user and delete any posts/comments when they are abusive. If it is a single person making alt accounts, I think they can even take action to get them IP banned as well.

I don't think it's a bot because they've directly reacted to people commenting on them. I have a feeling English isn't their first language, hence the odd grammar, sentence structure, they probably copy and paste their greatest hits.

I'm guessing he already hit this one and had his posts deleted and new account banned, due to it showing "25 comments" at the moment, but with only 4 visible:
