OK, that was three days ago, and you posted a message that was just a link to a "random youtube video" that didn't appear to be related to the question, which got caught by the automated systems and a human asked for his opinion.

I'd have agreed - that looks spammy, and I would have reported you as well if I'd been the one to see it.
We get a lot of very similar material that is spam every day ... and most of us aren't going to follow "spammy" links to see exactly what is on the other end as that's doing the spammers work for them.

What I'd suggest is that you take this as a learning exercise: don't just post links - they will always be suspect and YouTube is so full of rubbish that any link you post is likely to be unhelpful anyway. Always answer a question in text, with (if vital) links added to back it up, and stick to "fresh questions" instead of those with existing answers or which are "old".
