Ok even though Vanadium recently asked me to stop this stupid way of learning something through asking the same questions , even though their not all the same , I'll try my cards with this one.
Ok so we have fields like gravitational, electric and magnetic , now theoretically the fields don't have any upper limits of their strength at a given point in space if I understand correctly but practically what limits a fields strength at a given point of measurement ? Okay take gravitational field of a black hole for example , according to our current understanding the field inside the event horizon goes to infinity as there is so much mass at such a infinitely small point, and because mass gravitates it can make up a field which is so strong. (theoretically)Would it be possible to make a black hole using electric repulsion , attraction of charged particles which also have mass , like having an extremely strong say negative potential which would attract positively charged particles and crush them in a place so small that later on given enough mass of the particles it could turn into a black hole? I ask this because gravity is much weaker as a force than electromagnetism , and if it takes a star of huge mass to later fall into a BH then why couldn't it take a much smaller mass of charged particles and a extremely strong negative potential to crush that into a BH.?

Because charged particles have the tendency to repel each other.
Also, I notice that you do a lot of "handwaving" when you ask questions. For example:
