This question is an exact duplicate of:
I like SO/SE, since I often find very good answers that are nowhere else. So, from time to time, when I encounter unanswered questions, I take the time to log-in and write a correct answer, in order to take my turn in helping those that do not know things that I know.
Today, I discovered that I cannot post more than 2 links in my answer, because my reputation is 0 (yes, I do not have time to help so often and people probably don't take the time to +1 my answers). However, the person was asking for some tools that can help solve his task and I had 3 tools to propose with 4 links to describe them. That's not what I call spamming... And that was the way to respond correctly to the question.
I don't have so much time to waste in logging-in and writing a correct answer... I overcome my dislikes and do so because I like to retaliate and help others when they help me. I'm sorry to say that, but if this limit stays, I'm off.
So my questions are: why this limit? Why so low?
