Try not to post threads that are nothing more than a link to another website, and especially don't do it over and over. At least add some content to the post, it is a discussion forum after all.

I think link spam is when you send a link without explanation or further info. Or link do not have any relation with subject.

So in case I want to post an interesting news article,

In that case, it's not about the link, it's about how I post the link, right?

Yes, for example this thread.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=852646

The only text in your post besides the link, is literally from the link itself. Assume people aren't going to click the link (lot of malware and hacked accounts lately), make the thread interesting and not a complete waste of time. It's a forum for discussion, not an RSS feed.  

Though an integrated RSS feed could be cool.
