When do I have enough reputation?
I mean isn't there a number after which you are a permanent member that can almost not be removed? Is it the thrusted badge perhaps that you need? Did I overread that? If so I'm sorry.

    $\begingroup$ You can always be but if you are able to reach 20K it will probably be less common 8-). $\endgroup$ – Jonas Teuwen Sep 7 '12 at 22:13

    $\begingroup$ ...simply because it is less common to reach 20K, most of all! $\endgroup$ – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Sep 7 '12 at 22:14

    $\begingroup$ It's unclear exactly what you mean by "enough". $\endgroup$ – Alex Becker Sep 7 '12 at 22:21
  • $\begingroup$ When you write thrusted badge, do you mean trusted user? $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Sep 8 '12 at 9:51
  • $\begingroup$ @ Martin Does that imply you wont be removed ? Or removed less easily ? $\endgroup$ – mick Sep 8 '12 at 9:55
  • $\begingroup$ @mick I am just asking what you meant in your post, since I have not heard about thrusted badge so far. You can read in the link I provided what trusted user means; nothing about impossibility of removal is mentioned there. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Sep 8 '12 at 10:39

    $\begingroup$ @JohnJunior woah. Why? OP is just confused about how SE works. There's nothing wrong about asking! $\endgroup$ – user2468 Sep 9 '12 at 3:01
  • $\begingroup$ @mick reputation has nothing to do with suspension or removal. You're a member since day 1. Reputation is linked to privileges on this site. Anybody can register even unregistered users can ask questions. But the more rep. you earn, the more privileges you get, i.e. the more actions you can take. Among these: ask answers, write answers, write comments, vote up/down, edit other users questions ans answers, vote to close/delete other questions and answers, and many other things. You'll find accurate details in privileges page linked by rob john. $\endgroup$ – user2468 Sep 9 '12 at 3:07

No one is above removal. The list of your privileges is here.

Real users are never removed, misbehaviour may result in suspension, but not in deletion of the account. The exception are users requesting self-deletion, sock puppets and blatant spammers.
