Like you can see here : Protected Question

The +100 account association bonus is ignored for this check.

But when we are on our privilege, we earn this privilege even if we have only 101 points like you can see on the picture.

I think that if we put the privilege "answer protected question" with less opacity like the other :

It's more visible and understandable. What do you think?

    Yes!!!!!!! This is f***n ridiculous. "Thank you for your interest in this question. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site. " - well bugger me, I have over 100 - so why don't you just try to confuse me. May as well be "Potato, Potato, Potato, Potato. Maybe you can see this or not. We don't really care to elaborate."

I think they should split the privileges in two, where you can show a hover or some extra text to indicate you need to have the required reputation on that site before you gain that privilege.
