I don't like that after asking six questions, five of which having 0 votes, then one question gets -2 and I can't ask any more. How fair is this and why do such absurd rules exist?

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, visit the help center for guidance.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
The post-ban is in place to make sure a certain level of quality is maintained on the site. It forces users who do not overall positively contribute to the site to re-evaluate the quality of their contributions and improve them, before they are allowed to fully participate again. It's not all that absurd and is part of what maintains the quality this site has.
Two of your questions have been closed. One was downvoted. The rest did not achieve a positive score. That's not a great average. I don't know if you deleted anything else. Or if anything else got deleted? All you can do now is follow the advice given to you in the link.
Improve what you have contributed so far. And try to positively contribute in ways still possible to you. With a bit of effort you should be able to fully participate again in no time.
For you specifically, one of the closed questions was a dupe. Unfortunate perhaps, but preventable by putting some effort into searching the site for previous content on the topic.
The other closed question doesn't really ask a question related to a practical problem you face. You state what you want, and that's about it. Ideally the site's questions should contain what you have done, and where you are stuck. If you haven't really gotten anywhere yet, your question might simply not be appropriate for the site.
Overall your questions can do with a bit of love and care. Proper capitalization, proper phrasing. And above all clarity. Think of it like this: You are not merely asking a question to solve your immediate problem. You are also trying to generate content which will benefit future users. And the more clear you are in your description, the more chance others have to find a solution to their problem which is similar to yours. So put in a bit of effort.
Don't be too discouraged. With a bit of care you should be out of the ban in no time, if there are no skeletons in your closet.
