Immediately after answering a question on ambulance response time targets, I saw a blatant spam posting which was immediately pounced on by our brilliant community.

Just wanted to praise those who acted so quickly to take it down. When I downvoted and flagged it, the downvotes jumped to -7 and within seconds the post was removed.

Excessive promotion of a specific product/resource may be perceived by the community as spam. Take a look at the help page, specially What kind of behavior is expected of users?'s last section: Avoid overt self-promotion. You might also be interested in How to not be a spammer.

Keep up the good work everybody and flag the spam like we did here.

    The most likely post you seem to refer to was autoflagged by the smokedetector system. That alerts to quick action. Take a look at transcript, votes, views and timeline. You may thank a community that doesn't look around much here on meta. It was indeed quite obviously pure SPAM, and nothing bordering "excessive" ('genuine post with benefits'). Dec 12, 2019 at 12:12
