    I got a warning, because i offered my service on thread in the "Hire a freelancer" section.
    My offer was related and not spammy at all.

    My very first message from BHW:

    Code:
    1) Do NOT attempt to sell anything on this forum outside of the the Buy/Sell/Trade section. There is a $30 fee to post a thread there, which is non-refundable. The only exception to this rule is if you are selling a service, which can be freely offered in the Freelance/Help Wanted section.
    Please advise what did i do wrong.

    Read the post below yours, that user is claiming that you were basically spamming the forums with "Check out my signature." You can't do that here and the infraction may be based on your overall behavior and not just the one post.

    This is just speculation of course, only a moderator or above can give you an official answer.

    His request:

    I have made several bots that logs into webmail accounts (like yahoo) trough proxies and send out emails.
    My offer was valid!

    Please don't tell me what is my service about.

    You said "check out my signature." It's not really an offer - and I think that is where you probably went wrong. Try to be more relevant to the thread next time and find a way to get in touch with the person who is looking to hire.

    I thought it makes more sense to drive OP's attention to my signature than explaining that my service is about website scraper and bot programming (that's in the signature).

    I will avoid this in the future...

    Thanks mate
