This question already has an answer here:
I've noticed a certain behavior in the reputation of any user. More often than not, there are many new users joining
SO just to ask some very basic questions, without trying anything.
My questions is:-
When such questions are asked, we generally downvote that question to say that no effort was shown by the asked, but I've often noticed that the reputation of that user never falls below 1. Is 1 some kind of magic number, here at SO or say, at the all StackExchange sites?
