It has been clarified in this post /blog/post/716180 that the determination of whether you are spamming or not is a HUMAN subjective judgment. There is NO mindless/bureaucratic "rule" or software loophole to exploit.
If YOU know that you are spamming, WE know you are spamming. If YOU feel you are expressing a genuine sentiment, WE ALL know that it is NOT spam. So, all are requested to just blog NATURALLY, and NOT worry about some senseless "rule".
