Why do we have the "Participate Everywhere" ability when we haven't yet done anything?

We just made an account, and haven't done anything at all yet. No questions, no answers.

So why do we have "Participate Everywhere"? According to the ability page, it looks like we would need a minimum of 5 positively-received posts, which of course means we'd need to have 5+ posts in the first place.

Bootstrapping. Our communities are still small, so after we rolled out the abilities system we decided to put all our communities in "new community" mode, which lets everyone start with Participate Everywhere. Moderators can suspend a specific ability for a user if it's being misused, either for a specific time period or until the ability is properly earned.

We probably should have been clearer about this, sorry! We'll work with each community to decide when it wants to remove this start-up boost.
