I think I found the root of some of the poisoning of the dataset at this link. It contains TheNitromeFan, SolidGoldMagikarp, RandomRedditorWithNo, Smartstocks, and Adinida from the original post, as well as many other usernames which induce similar behaviours; for example, when ChatGPT is asked about davidjl123, either it terminates responses early or misinterprets the input in a similar way to the other prompts. I don't think it's a backend scraping thing, so much as scraping Github, which in turn contains all sorts of unusual data.
