I recall a ban on asking questions on serverfault. Aside from asking a question to see what happens, how do I know whether that ban is still in effect? Looking at my rep, I see:

-2  18:02   downvote    mailman web UI on localhost with apache2

which makes me think it might have been lifted?

I saw a message like this:

What can I do when getting "We are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account"?

or similar, in the past. I just don't want to go through the trouble of forming and asking a question just to get that message again, so I would like to know the status of my ban.

At what stage in asking a question do you see the error message?

You are currently not blocked from participating in the site in any way.

You were last blocked in December 2013; it would have to have been a very very serious, moderator implemented incident for it to last 6 months.

Just be careful, as it's not very hard to get back onto the automatic block list if more of your questions are poorly received.

    With only one notable exception, all bans are strictly temporary, but they increase in length with each occasion. – Mark Henderson Jun 11 '14 at 4:45
