Well it is a barrier that has stopped me participating too. It is very easy to dismiss these when you, and all those around you, are beyond them.

It's a shame that that's kept you, and probably others out. Honestly I think it's worth it to have some small barrier, but whether it's helping much is debatable- there's still been a pretty bad downturn in the quality of content in some areas over the past couple years.

The 50 reputation barrier only stops you from commenting. It's a spam prevention measure. Anyone can answer a question (even anonymously) with 1 reputation. Anyone who registers can ask a question.
