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

Apparently, I was sent to the penalty box. I was looking here and saw that it said, "Your user page will have a visual indication that you are in timed suspension, and for how long." I checked my profile and I don't see any visual indication.

Edit: My Stackoverflow account got in the penalty box.

I get this message when trying to create a question, "Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions from this account. See to learn more."

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.

Which account? You have several. – Neil Fein Jul 6 '11 at 23:57
You're not in any penalty boxes at the moment. If it was a short ban, say 1 day, then you may never have seen it happen. – Mark Henderson Jul 6 '11 at 23:57

You have too many low quality questions. – user7116 Jul 7 '11 at 0:38

Your account is not suspended; if it were, then, as reported in A Day in the Penalty Box:

  • Your account would be locked at 1 reputation.
  • Your user page would have a visual indication that you are in timed suspension, and for how long.
  • You would be unable to vote, ask, answer, or comment.

You cannot ask questions because a question ban automatically triggered by the quality of your previous questions. Differently from a suspension, there isn't a visual indication of an account being banned from asking questions.

Is there any way I can fix this? – Daniel Pendergast Jul 10 '11 at 18:02
@Dan You cannot: "Once you have posted too many bad quality questions, you will be banned from asking more, and see the error message. You can then still use the site, except for asking questions." – kiamlaluno Jul 10 '11 at 18:05
that's terrible! – Daniel Pendergast Jul 10 '11 at 18:23
