Even though I got banned suspended, I'm able to mark a question as a favorite. Is this functionally correct?

I don't see how marking a question as favorite has anything to do with a ban. –  Octavian Damiean Apr 11 '11 at 8:05

If by ban, you mean that stackoverflow isn't accepting questions/answers from your account, then, why would it be appropriate to prevent you from marking questions as favourites?

The ban is to prevent negative behaviour that detracts from the value of the site, i.e. poor questions/answers. You being able to mark a question as a favourite doesn't, and I'd be hard presssed to see how it could, detract from the value of the site (unless you sit and mark, lets say, all the questions, as favourites).

And an automated ban for questions only, showing Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions from this account., would even still allow one to post answers. But in this case, the user is not banned, but suspended. –  Arjan Apr 11 '11 at 9:53

There was a bug in the javascript that made it seem like you could favorite questions - the server still rejected any attempts you made.

A fix will be deployed in the next push.
