Did anyone moderated you from debian-devel? What do you mean by
``aren't'' allowed?

What you're talking about is communism, believe me. You and Ben have
equal rights in Debian Project, but Ben has much more power. And democracy is:
-- you have more money -- you have more power (not rights). Debian 
equivalent -- you make more job for debian and have more knowledge and
expirience -- you have more power. I can bet that you can't even
imagine how much of himself Ben dedicates to Debian. Compared to him,
you are just a lurker.
