For some time, 1 rep users are banned from MSE. Today, a 1 rep user posted a coding question again (https://meta.stackexchange.com/q/280712/245360).
Has the ban been lifted or is it broken (again)?
The ban was lifted.
We have expired all the remaining unread "terms of services changed" inbox items, which was what caused a lot of people from Stack Overflow to drop here (and then ask their off-topic question here).
The thought behind that was that with that no longer alerting people, they will not come here after all.
Don't forget - we always had a number of people posting programming questions here, well before the terms of service inbox announcement. Hopefully, we are back to that "background level" of noise.
