March 2013[edit]

This is your only warning; if you insert a spam link to Wikipedia again, as you did at Talk:Presidency of Barack Obama, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Persistent spammers may have their websites blacklisted, preventing anyone from linking to them from all Wikimedia sites as well as potentially being penalized by search engines. - MrX 21:47, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

It's not "spam" - the material comments on the article. Thirsty and purple (talk) 21:51, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
That's what I figured. You were reported at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism, and I commented on the report because I figured you weren't trying to spam. You seemed to be doing this in good faith, not to spam. Lugia2453 (talk) 21:55, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Thank you! Thirsty and purple (talk) 21:56, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
We don't direct people to off-wiki discussions to resolve content issues. That is spamming, whether you're a bot or not. You added this link to nine pages, which also runs afoul of WP:CANVASSING.
@Lugia2453 - With identical post to several pages in a short amount of time it looked like a bot. I did place a warning though after filing this, to see if the user would respond. - MrX 22:10, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
