It's because, for one, the "no spam posting" rule is clearly stated on
the forum page. Two, everyone who posts here is expected to abide by
those posting rules, and most people do. Some of us have been around
enough years to see more than enough posts by people who either didn't
care to read the posting rules or somehow think they're specially
entitled to do whatever they want despite the posting rules. Please
understand that things like the posting rules are there to help keep the
newsgroup in reasonable working order and not turn it into a rotting pit
of spam posts and posts that are too much trouble to read and figure out.

Your original post was not spam, but you posted the spam in a later
post. I still don't understand why you keep denying that you posted spam
here when all you have to do is look back at your previous posts to see
the one where you included the actual spam. Often, people do not want to
help someone who ignores a few simple posting rules plainly posted on
the forum page. Also, like Mike mentioned before, you posted your
private SpamCop submission address, which means anyone who read the post
can now submit spam using your personal submission address and possibly
get you in trouble on purpose. Your SpamCop submission address is
personal and should be kept private to keep other people from abusing
it. You wouldn't post computer passwords for other people to see, so you
need to think of it as the same security measure with your spam

Like I said before, those rules are in place to keep the newsgroups in
reasonable working order. Many other people respect those rules. I don't
see why you have a problem with the fact that a few rules need to be in
place to keep the newsgroup from turning into total chaos.
