sorry, my fault.
I used the name jalu in the past, at forums debian net.
I still use the name j1alu at linuxquestions org. 
I use the name tornow and the name banshee at different other places
(both of those i use seldom...)

At debianuserforums i only use the name nadir. So i do at any other

So; i count as one user.
As you see others know that. I ran into it, but don't make a secret out
of it.

Above there has been the complaint that there are no signatures.
I think that is  a valid complain, and gave mine.
Looks like i made it rather worse than better.
Sorry for that.

My main interest in the new board is:
We don't hide things.
Things are not getting decided behind the curtains
(the users are supposed to run the board, so hidden curtains would not
make sense).
If you think a post is not ok, don't use the report button.
Say it in public.
Another example:
A user out of hand will not be banned (and not without even telling it
to his fellow users).
His right of free speech will stay save, but only in one area of the
board. There he can ask/discuss/explain his situation.

I am far from wanting to hide anything.
As your question lead to one of the main policy interest of the
debianuserforums.org i answered to the mailing list.
