When I try to ask a question, I receive the message:

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:

Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions from this account.

And strangely when I logged in on Ubuntu everything was fine. What's the problem?

    There are numerous posts about the error message you're seeing; see these questions. (Not voting to close, though, because of the second half of your question.) – Pops Dec 6 '10 at 19:53
  • You can't ask new, instead improve the quality of previous posts – random Dec 6 '10 at 20:00
  • @random but look at the guy's contributions. How are they bad enough to justify a blocking? – Pekka supports GoFundMonica Dec 6 '10 at 20:27

    @Rejoice It's possible he had other posts that are now deleted – Michael Mrozek Dec 6 '10 at 20:55
  • @Michael yeah. I would really like to be able to see deleted posts – Pekka supports GoFundMonica Dec 6 '10 at 20:58
  • @Rejoice 20k ability? – Michael Mrozek Dec 6 '10 at 20:59
  • @Michael good idea! It's probably too late to make a dent there anymore, but I'll add it nevertheless. – Pekka supports GoFundMonica Dec 6 '10 at 21:00
  • There's no deleted post. If I wanted to delete I would delete that -7 post. – kvphxga Dec 6 '10 at 22:40
  • My account has been banned from asking questions again for the 4th time ... Stack need to do something about this ... its irritating – Yatin K Jul 21 '12 at 6:15

I suspect you're logged in as a different account on your Ubuntu box than on your Windows box, and the account you're logged in as on the Windows box has been banned.

  • My username and reputation number and all other things on Ubuntu are the same as Windows. Except that I cannot ask. In addition, If it is banned why I can log in? – kvphxga Dec 6 '10 at 19:57
  • @kvphxga: Banned from asking questions isn't necessarily the same thing as banned outright. But it's odd if you're seeing the same reputation etc... – Jon Skeet Dec 6 '10 at 19:59
  • This is again a case where - judging from the content visible - the "bad questions" filter has blocked a user who doesn't really seem to deserve it (There is one -7 spike but the overall quality of contributions looks pretty decent). I'm all for blocking users who ask bad questions, but I hope the team know what they're doing here – Pekka supports GoFundMonica Dec 6 '10 at 20:23
