The question Apple A1277 USB ethernet adapter not working on MacBook Air requires a reputation of 10 to post an answer. My account has a reputation of 106, through (mostly) the magic cross-site Stack Exchange bonus, but I can't post an answer.

Any ideas why?


Protected questions require 10 reputation to have been earned on the site itself, thus this is .

The 100 reputation association bonus is purposefully removed from the calculation used to determine if you have sufficient reputation to answer a protected question, and as such you have 6 reputation which is below the 10 threshold.

If you found the protected question notice confusing, feel free to upvote this Meta.SE feature request to change the phrasing of the protected question post notice.

I went to upvote your question so you'd have enough reputation, but I've already done that!
