The site says we are no longer accepting questions from this account when I try to submit a question in physics section. I don't even have a bad reputation. All I asked was one single question which got me two upvotes. So I don't even know why I'm being targeted or something like that.

    $\begingroup$ The system doesn't block you for one upvoted question. Do you have any questions you asked that you deleted? $\endgroup$ – ACuriousMind Jul 31 '16 at 12:39
  • $\begingroup$ Just to be clear, you are actually unable to post a question, right? It's not just a warning that you are in danger of getting blocked? $\endgroup$ – David Z Jul 31 '16 at 13:48

    $\begingroup$ For the record, with a post like this it helps a lot if you quote the exact message you're getting. Sometimes the interpretation of what is going on depends on slight details in the wording of the message. $\endgroup$ – David Z Jul 31 '16 at 16:59

You have been subjected to one of several automated bans that are active on the network. These bans are temporary, but we can't tell you how long they will last.

We can suggest that you follow and read the links in the message you get when you attempt to post a question.

I can tell you about any deleted question associated with your account if you wish, however that is something that will be in public view. Just comment here asking.

    $\begingroup$ Your first two questions (asked June 20th and 22nd of this year) were both substantially downvoted—negative 4 and negative 3 respectively—and eventually deleted by an automated process. These count rather heavily against you. Your more recent question—with it's positive 3 vote count—will help to shorten the length of the automated ban. It may be as little as 24 hours, though the details are confidential even from site moderators. $\endgroup$ – dmckee Jul 31 '16 at 16:09
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @dmckee but don't you think the site shouldve given me a warning first so that I could improve? I just can't even do anything but wait. $\endgroup$ – Zlatan Aug 1 '16 at 0:50
