youtube links in forums

We have had several posts where a person posts a link to a youtube video, and never comes back to the sight or only comes back to promote more youtube clips. If I felt like it was an average joe hunter posting up their hunt, I don't think I would have a problem with it. However, many of these posts feel more like Spam than a contribution to the forums. I have been guilty of commenting on one of these posts where I liked the question being asked. Does anybody else feel like these type of posts are spam?

When the poster only has one

When the poster only has one or two post or just constantly post links to videos equates spam to me. A lot of them may be in some kind of contest just to see how many hits their video gets.

I have gotten to the point that I won't even watch the video or respond to their post.

Yes

Yes, I am of the same opinion that they are spam and won't even watch the video or comment on the post.
