The problem is that the links don't go to GitHub, they go to your site - and there are a lot of them!
If the documentation is available via github, then link directly to that, as there is no commercial aspect, and it can't be considered as site driving spam.
When you add that your profile consists of just what appears to be a company name - the same as all the links point to - and a single sentence you start to look more and more like a spammer.

I don't think you intended to spam - or at least I hope not - but we get a lot of that, and most of it is deliberate.
I'll remove the report link for the moment so you don't get kicked off, and let you repost the article, but if you could replace the "devzest" links with direct GitHub ones, that would help. Be aware that I'm far from the most "trigger happy" member here, and if it looks like spam again, the chances are you'll be kicked!
