I have no question or answere on this site; today as I was going to ask my first question I received this message on the question form:

Wait! Some of your past questions have not been well-received, and you're in danger of being blocked from asking any more.

Is it a bug or it has a justification? I am a member of some Stackexchage websites, I am active on Programmers and StackOverflow, in the StackOverflow I have this warning too, but there I have asked many questions; But why here?

You have asked two questions before. Both received downvotes, and one was closed as offtopic. Both have been deleted in the meantime, but the system still "sees" them.

That said, I don't know in which way the system punishes overall behaviour on the network as a whole. Messages such as these are the result of heuristics the details of which are not necessarily public.

You get rid of the warning by asking several well-received questions (see here). The links the message contains lead to some hints (e.g., this link); you can also check our most often used comments and the discussions linked in them for more specific pointers.

If you are uncertain whether a question would be suitable, feel free to drop by in chat for a "beta test".
