We can't reply unless we have a comment to reply to - I'm certainly not sending my email to strangers, particularly ones that look like spammers.

"Empty link" spam is when you add an "<a href=...>" link to your message which contains no data in the text area:
<a href=...></a>
This means that the link can't be seen, can;t be clicked on, and isn't meant to be detected, just inserted directly into a page - normally to improve SEO / page rankings of the target site.
The moderation system here automatically picks up on these and displays them as "Empty Link" in the moderation queue so the moderators can easily see what is going on. Since there is no good reason to post such other than spam (and nobody in their right mind is going to follow a spam link) the post was not going to get through.

And standard procedure: spammer accounts get reported and die. It's unlikely you can get it back: most spammers just try to be cleverer next time and get kicked off again ...
