Recently I answered a question that was stated on stackoverflow regarding rest documentation. In my answer, I stated the following (quote):
"you might also consider ..... It grew from a tool we use within our own company and it's free to use for open source projects. It does exactly what you describe."
The tool actually does indeed solve the problem stated by the user. I never concealed that I was one of the authors. My answer was commented on by another user with the remark 'Whois states that you are the owner of the company, spam' and the answer was removed by a moderator in minutes.
Is it forbidden to make note of a solution you developed, simply because you developed it and if the tool is freely available for open source?
Once again, I didn't mean to blatantly advertise and apologize for the infriction. Please let me know what is acceptable for future answers.
