Why do you think we kick spammers off at all?

Simple: this site runs on advertising: if we let people advertise for free then why would anyone pay for it instead? And with that income, the site can't sustain itself - as you will have noticed, there is no charge at all to come here, learn, join up, or post - and since we (the community) like the place, we cooperate in identifying and kicking spammers.

Deleting "just the spam part" just tells treh spammers how to spam more efficiently, with the hope that they may get their cr@p through. That isn't helpful to anyone!

Yes, it's inconvenient for you because you wanted to drive traffic to your channel and we prevented that. But it's a lot more inconvenient to a whole load of people to increase the amount of spam that gets posted!
