Is Spoofing alive and well?

For the past 2-3 days (including MLK day) I seem to have noticed a change in the patterns I see on CL.

I am specifically referring to Depth of Market, but I suppose it is not like those patterns are not seen on a chart as well.

In particular, I seem to observe much more frequently what to the general 'trader' population would look like aggressive spoofing. Almost as if a new liquidity provider was added to the mix, or an existing one changed tactics, or some hedge fund perhaps.

Attached video is an example of the behavior seen.

I'd like to open the question to anyone who is able to answer, but I'd also like to direct the question to @artemiso whom, given the specific exposure to these themes, may be able to offer his/her take on this.
