That rule of the TOS was done to prevent outsiders from creating threads and whatnot specifically to promote their own websites. As Herald doesn't work for TV Tropes and has done the same schtick at other sites, it seems to me that this is just his way of communicating since he can't find the words to express himself.
I believe that at one point TV Tropes had been banned from the site (along with Newsbusters), but I'm pretty sure that repeated cries of Mawd Absue caused that to be reversed.
Herald is a contributor on tvtropes, every time we get a trope i get the feeling that he's just posting links to his latest contribution to the site. Google Herald and tvtropes and you'll see it yourself.
That good enough to consider it spamming?
