Why does spam always end up in the "Books, Literature, and Writing" category?

HP is pretty good at getting most of the spammy questions deleted, but it seems like every time I see one, it has been posted in the "Books, Literature, and Writing" category, specifically the 'how to write short stories' section. Given this is one of my favorite Q&A categories, it's incredibly annoying that spammers seem to have singled it out. But, for the life of me, I can't figure out why.

    Something like "Extreme weight loss pill, has doctors baffled." They aren't questions, they're just bots shooting out keywords where ever they can find an open forum.
