Odd assessment of "useful"? Not at all! The reaped post was essentially equivalent to posting:
My latest work: http://bit.ly/3jh598a7f437
It said absolutely nothing of substance
about what was behind the link. And, even if it had given a good description of the link's content, how am I to know that the description is honest and accurate rather than going to a spam/scam/phishing page or one which will attempt to deliver malware to my browser?
So, no, I stand by my assessment of such posts as "not useful" and see nothing odd about that position. Doubly so when you're posting to a site with clearly-established support for posting code directly to the site itself and an equally-clear tradition of it being the norm to do so.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
