Did you get a red message that "suggested" that you take a break, either for 15 minutes or 12 hours? That's just Ask.com's way of making sure that the site doesn't get spammed, and that those of us who have "Ask Issues" get a little fresh air and sunshine once in a while. It happens to all of us who are passionate about answering...don't take it personally. You can still comment and give green thumbs where you think appropriate. It happens to me all the time.
