Suppose you had no other activity on a site, except for the fact that you earned 2 points for each edit, up to a maximum of 1000 points of reputation. That would translate into a maximum of 500 edits.
Suppose you wrote questions and/or answers that earned you say, a NEGATIVE 100 of reputation. Does that mean that you could get credit for up to 550 edits to take you up to 1000 reputation?
At some point, if you wrote enough bad questions/answers, you would get question/answer banned. Do points for edits count against such a ban?
