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

Where can I get the reason for having been banned for asking questions on Stack Overflow? I haven't found any reason for this, and I haven't yet found any Internet resource where user can be banned without any explanation, so I think such a good site like Stack Overflow has a page where I can read administrators' doings connected to me.

have you tried to click on that link? –  Matthias Bauch Jan 21 '12 at 9:53
    
@MatthiasBauch yes but it has not helped me to answer my question –  Aleksey Jan 21 '12 at 9:56
    
According to this Data explorer query, your account seems OK. I guess that you're a victim of someone else's deeds (=IP ban). –  Rob W Jan 21 '12 at 9:59

@Rob W but that query doesn't include deleted posts, does it? With every complaint about the question block I've ever seen on Meta, it later turns out the OP had a huge percentage of downvoted and deleted contributions. –  Pëkka Jan 21 '12 at 10:05
    
@Pekka'sOrganicRepFarm Late response, but I just recalled that I once recovered a deleted answer on MSO via the Data Explorer. So, it does include deleted posts, but not the newest ones. –  Rob W Jan 23 '12 at 16:41
    
I'm in the same boat as Aleksey on stackoverflow. Dunno what happened, was working fine before... –  LearnIT May 9 '13 at 0:13

You keep on deleting questions you ask. That is poor practice. If you ask something, let the loop be closed and let others answer you. If you get no answer, you can always answer it yourself.

To avoid asking dupes, search well before asking.

Also, take some time and provide awesome answers.

Your case is borderline, the ban will most likely be lifted if you contribute one or 2 awesome answers, you are clearly capable of providing.

"You keep on deleting questions you ask. That is poor practice." and Aleksey, this is actually mentioned with its own heading in that FAQ. Sure, that answer is long, but I think it's up to the question-banned user to read it two or three times if needed, read the linked resources, and then figure out what got them banned. –  Arjan Jan 21 '12 at 10:53
