Spamming can be one of many things,
1.Posting many times in a row on the same thread.
2.Being off topic ex:"What's your favorite coaster?" reply:"I like dogs"
3.Pretty much just posting to get your post count up

spamming can also be described as "accidentaly" hitting the send button 463 times and ruining a message board game.

or it could be advertising your website just to get its name out
but not doing it in the Show off your Site forum

like having the URL in your sig.
mentioning it in all of your posts
and PMing it to ppl.
