LinkedIn is replacing my status updates with different content

In what I can only assume is some bizarre mistake by LinkedIn, some of my status updates on LinkedIn that contain links to this blog are being replaced by what appear to be advertisements in the main news feed – yet appear normal to me on my own profile. Below are screen shots.

How one update appears in the general news feed:

Of course this is troubling to me, as I am careful about what kind of content I share with my network, and want to protect them from messages that contain no value. I really don’t like that this is going on and have sent LinkedIn a notification that is the current scenario.
