What is spam?

What is spam?
Spam is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services. Spam costs the sender very little to send -- most of the costs are paid for by the recipient or the carriers rather than by the sender.

I offered our members my own free.. wallpapers which I posted myself.. advertising nothing..
charging nothing.. simply free wallpapers.. so why lock my topic and write on it... I Posted Spam?
and then not have the decency to respond to my PMs. ?

Grow a brain please. We don't want you plugging your forum offering free wallpaper or whatever. Thus, as far as we are concerned, it's SPAM.
