Unusual and annoying new blog spam

I’m not sure I understand the point of this new (to me at least) form of blog spam I’m seeing on my sites. I have numerous comments on my posts by anonymous users with non-spammy wording and no URL at all. An example of this can be seen in the comments on the following post on this site:

I can see a few of these types of comments occasionally, but several of every single post? Is anyone else seeing this? I’ll be tweaking some of the settings for my comments in WordPress to prevent these from occurring, but the bigger point is WHY? They are obviously spam but with no useful purpose (i.e. no links, no advertising, no nothing!). Am I missing something here?
