There are two reasons:

  1. It doesn't fully answer the question, but instead puts part of the answer behind a link. It would be better to show the example that answers the question that was asked.

  2. It's nearly an exact duplicate of this other answer by you. If those two questions are duplicates, please flag one of them or vote to close instead of copy/pasting the same answer. If they're not duplicates, then customize your answers so each one answers the particular question being asked.
