I asked what I thought was a perfectly reasonable question about lightroom.
Nobody answered it, and a little while later I wrote a lua script to solve my problem. I answered my own question with a link to the script. A little while later a moderator deletes my question saying:
"Sorry smoofra, but this is not an open forum for your personal advertising. Creating a question solely to answer it with a link to your own product is unacceptable. This and any future attempts will be deleted"
Here are the key points:
I wrote the question before I wrote the script.
The purpose of the script is to solve the problem posed by the question. It isn't a product. It isn't for sale. Nobody is making any money off of it, and nobody ever will.
Did I do something wrong here? This guy deletes my post and accuses me of being a spammer for asking an honest question and sharing the answer I came up with. I have to say its left a sour taste in my mouth with respect to this whole community.
