Unfair and meaningless penalty

Good morning everyone, I recently received a penalty that seems unfair to me.

I have uploaded some "Selected Items" coupons and for the most part I never specify the direct link for the offer, I have also reactivated some and have never penalized me for the following reason.

Oops! Your validation: Save 15% Off on Water Softeners at Tier1 was flagged for the following reason: No direct link provided / cannot locate deal. Your Accuracy Score may have been affected.Thank you for helping us create a great experience on Dealspotr by reviewing your validations! - view your deal - View our deal posting guidelines for more details

On the other hand you have clearly specified that this option of providing the offer url is "OPTIONAL".


So I do not understand why I have been penalized. Can someone please clarify this for me?
