In case of all of my questions are being downvoted (have minus score) am I likely to be banned from asking future questions?

    The precise implementation of the ban process is not public. We do not know the answer. Sep 10 '13 at 12:30

    Your previous question was closed as a duplicate. Did you read the duplicate? Then you should have gotten your answer. And keep in mind that even on Meta you can be post-banned at some point. Do your research please. Especially when we hand you the information.

  • Have you recieved the "We are not accepting questions from this account message? Or just getting lots of downvotes? Sep 10 '13 at 12:33
  • -1 because you seem to miss the points here. Keeping to ask for help over and over won't get you anywhere. Sep 10 '13 at 12:33

    Last but not least.. all your questions so far on Meta are closed as duplicates - please do some research before asking. Sep 10 '13 at 12:35
  • As it comes up every time; deleted questions count too Sep 10 '13 at 12:35
  • @RichardTingle is correct and they count more than ordinary questions. Sep 10 '13 at 12:37

    @david - stop editing your question in such a fashion; you're completely changing the context of your original question. If you have a new question, ask a new question. Sep 10 '13 at 13:33
  • because this question is mark as duplicated, I want to edit so this question that is mark as duplicated is removed and possibly get upvoted.

    Thats not the way it works, if its a new question it should be a "new question". Editing to become a completely different question completely invalidates Oden's answer Sep 10 '13 at 13:37

The exact criteria for a question ban to take effect is not public knowledge, as it would allow people to circumvent it.

But, a large part of getting banned is asking many questions that get downvotes.
