1. On my profile, it says I've only asked 46 questions...

2.What is the point of this question limit?

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.

Have you deleted any questions? – Adam Rackis Mar 27 '12 at 20:23
I've deleted 2 i believe – Billjk Mar 27 '12 at 20:24
It also counts questions that others deleted on your behalf. – cdeszaq Mar 27 '12 at 20:27
@Null - thanks for looking - I seem to recall a proposal to let users see deleted questions on their profile - might have been useful here – Adam Rackis Mar 27 '12 at 20:31

The 50 question limit includes questions you've asked, and then subsequently deleted.

I'll bet a hefty sum that you've deleted* at least 5 questions in the last 30 days.

*or, as cdeszaq points out, others may have voted and deleted questions for you

If you had any deleted questions, it counts towards the 50 question limit.
