What can I do when getting “Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions from this account”?

Hey guys yesterday and today I've had a few people who I will not express my anger at them in French... who have been spam downvoting me

Could this be why I cannot post any questions on SO?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Downvote is not spam. It means someone think your post has poor quality. If your posts will be good, they will get upvotes - simple as that. This said, if you think you got downvotes as retaliation to something you said to someone (e.g. in chat) please email the team ( with the names of those people and what they said to you, and they will check it out. In the meantime, you can try and give good productive answers, once you reach enough answers with upvotes the ban will be also lifted. – Shadow Wizard Nov 17 '11 at 8:22
not if they go through all of your posts and downvote every single one.. that is therefore called Downvote SPAMMING!!! – adam2510 Nov 17 '11 at 8:33
Such thing is identified by the system and those downvotes are removed, give it couple of days. Happened to me and to many others. See this as well.. – Shadow Wizard Nov 17 '11 at 8:37
