Let's say I'm a newbie on Site X. I begin by writing two answers to that get two upvotes and three upvotes, respectively (total of five, for 50 reputation points).
Then I write some bad questions, enough to get me banned if I had zero answer upvotes, but below a threshold raised by the answer upvotes. (My understanding is that some fraction of answer upvotes mitigate against a question ban.)
A mod then deletes one or both of my upvoted answers so I no longer have the "threshold" protection. Does the question ban now kick in automatically, or do I have to ask another "bad" question before it does?
