You did a lot more than that, and your prior question was focused more on

The 2nd tracker's spambody doesn't resemble that of the first much at
all, it is significantly changed and abbreviated.

'Too many links' has been discussed [in the discussion groups, not in
.spam, which isn't a discussion group] to death - here's a googleup web
of the phrase appearing in the pipermail reflection of spamcop.net
"Too many links" site:spamcop.net http://snipurl.com/95wq -- That's
about 175 hits to look over.
Currently the spammer strategy of many links wins because the spamcop
counterstrategies have encountered problems. Sometimes too many links is
because there are a lot of innocent bystanders; sometimes too many links
is because there are many subdomains and the strategy of going after the
nameservice proved to be flawed.
This dialog business will work much better conversationally if you trim,
contextualize, attribute, and cite according to recommended guidelines
such as these

Q2: How should I use the quoted text and arrange it with my own text?
Q6: What's this about attributing properly?
Q7: Why shouldn't I put my comments above the quoted material?
