What is it called when forum and blog spammers make a post and use a second account to spam in the reply to the original question?

I don't see an answer to this question, so I'm creating my own term for it:

alley-oop spamming

Alley-oop spamming is when one or more spammers, working together, create a question that is used to generate a discussion where they can later post their spam as the answer to the original question.

It's a good enough term as any I suppose

I prefer to refer to them in by a long list of expletives. My favorite of which I cannot post here. :D
