I tried to ask a question on meta after a site ban was lifted, but I was greeted with this page.

    ... did you just post a question on meta... asking why.. you couldn't post a question on meta? That's meta. – KutuluMike Nov 4 '17 at 12:52

    @KyloRen - Having gotten yourself chat-banned after just a few minutes back on the site and having now immediately gotten into an argument with two different site users, may I politely suggest (and with the greatest amount of friendly and positive vibes) that your shut your mouth before you get yourself banned again. Take a day to think about how you want to interact with the site. – Valorum Nov 4 '17 at 13:09

    @KyloRen - Almost your first action in chat was to post a message laden with swearwords. What were you expecting to happen? – Valorum Nov 4 '17 at 13:15
  • @Valorum, what swear words – KyloRen Nov 4 '17 at 13:18

    @KyloRen - I believe your exact words were that "Floofs suck balls". And if you don't know that that's inappropriate for polite discourse, you may need to have a good hard think about what you say in public. – Valorum Nov 4 '17 at 13:20
  • @Valorum, and that is considered a swear word? What are we in pre-school here? – KyloRen Nov 4 '17 at 13:21

    @KyloRen - Let the fact that your post attracted 7 "abusive language" flags be your guide. – Valorum Nov 4 '17 at 13:28

    @Valorum, so it is the users that decide what is abusive then. I could say, "The cat sat in a hat" and if 7 people said that was abusive , it would be so then. – KyloRen Nov 4 '17 at 13:36

    @KyloRen - I find it unlikely that 7 users would flag that as abusive but if they did, then yes, you'd attract an automatic ban. You could, however appeal it using the contact us facility (or by flagging a moderator with a custom flag) and they'd unban you straight away and might consider banning those users who'd flagged you inappropriately. – Valorum Nov 4 '17 at 13:37
  • @Valorum, why bother. This site is so inconsistent it is not funny. – KyloRen Nov 4 '17 at 13:44

    Down-voting due to lack of research. – Möoz Nov 5 '17 at 23:02

I think as is often to blame... the issue is caching...

It takes about 10 minutes for reputation to catch back up.

It seems this has now been resolved as you have posted a question both on the main site and on meta.

  • But , I could post a questiion on the main site , but not on meta? – KyloRen Nov 4 '17 at 12:57

    You can post a question on main with only 1 rep. – Skooba Nov 4 '17 at 13:03
  • No I can't!!!!! – KyloRen Nov 4 '17 at 13:04
