Because someone has spammed the teams pages with junk and the pages haven't been cleaned up yet.

Teams are listed in alphabetical order and those characters count as being before the standard roman alphabet and so the spam fills the first 20 odd pages of the teams pages. After that you reach spam which starts with a number or even a letter and so the real teams start to get mixed in between the spam posts on the pages.

Not much you can do to filter it out other than hope the mbed team clean things up. Spam has been a recurring problem on the site for a couple of years. For some reason they have yet to implement a decent method of blocking posts like this.

I suspected this. My goal was to find more legit teams to follow for educational purposes...
