Happy to enlighten you, then :-)

That person is misguided.

Essential guide: http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/#codeofconduct

The page of that guide is referenced at top of http://lists.debian.org/ 
- in case you are bad at memorizing stuff like I am :-)

You are a user. Period!

You just posted on a public mailinglist, both sharing insight of yours 
and encouraging collaboration from others.  That's how "just" you are!

...I am a user too - besides being Debian developer :-)

Perhaps you misunderstood my suggestion...:

  * Using our wiki provides equal access from both users and developers
  * List appear only when someone decides to publish her own info there

I didn't think so - sorry if I gave that impression.  If someone (you?) 
starts this, I suggest explicitly mention that logic to encourage 
privacy awareness to anyone editing the page.
