OK, riddle me this. I needed to make a PDF with C# code for someone too cheap to pay for Aspose, iTextSharp or other commercial library that would do the job. There seem to be two projects on CodeProject that make rather simple PDFs without a ($600 to start) commercial library. A fair amount of searching led me to the PDFJet library, much of which can be used used for free under a 2 clause BSD license. It's easy to build and I made a pretty complicated PDF Fax Cover Sheet I needed using only C#. I was thrilled so I posted about it with a link to the Open Source library. I bet it could even be compiled to .Net Core though I didn't try.
Anyway, in almost any post in any forum, including CodeProject, the first answer to how to make a PDF with C# is to use the expensive iTextSharp. I wrote about what I had found on the question at https://www.codeproject.com/Answers/5275236/Create-PDF-File-In-Csharp-3-5 which asked "How can i create a pdf file using c# with table format ?"... Which it answers. So why did I get an email saying "Your answer 'Create PDF File In C# 3.5' has been reported by Nelek and has been closed, with the reason being given as Content has been posted that is spam."? It's free for one thing while none of the other libraries are. It's a valuable, uncommon resource to me as a C# developer and might be to others. I have nothing to do with the Open Source project.
One thing I noticed when researching the project. Over and over I found posts on SO with resources ... and the post was marked as closed for being inappropriate for some reason. What is with it about the content police?
