I have googled and haven't really found an answer. I have had a couple of questions get severely downvoted here (one was a support question too, thx). If I get auto-banned on meta, will it affect my ability to post stackoverflow.com? I've read this https://meta.stackoverflow.com/help/whats-meta but some other questions seem to imply that its site wide.

    How would you manage to get banned here?

    @ColeJohnson Maybe by repeatedly insulting unicorns, marking up screen shots with subtle-colored perfectly neat outlines made with an ellipse tool or square tool, or taking the name of J-n Sk--t in vain?

  • @AdiInbar unicorns? Gah! Those things? They drive me nuts! And non-free hand circles are the best kind! Are you serious? Oh my Jon Skeet!

No.

Yes. However, Meta and SO are considered different sites.

  • so meta downvotes are separate but banned from SO would be SO, superuser, etc...?

    @timpone No. SO is a different site from SU.

  • @timpone No, every SE site is separate.
