users are under general suspicion to express unwanted opinions, hence
everybody is moderated by a credit system. This Chinese alike approach
has nothing to do with the "libre" in FLOSS.

Please curb your paranoia. The Gimp mailing list is already a central
authority (you can be banned...) and uses a server from another
authority, from which it could hypothetically be kicked.

There are valid reasons to moderate or ban a user, but usually such a
user is barred by an individual part of a project, not by the whole
universe and before it happens a user must have expressed something that
is unwanted.

People gets banned because of their obnoxious behavior, not because of
their opinion on such and such project. In which case it is likely that
their behavior is pervasive.

A credit system to stop individual opinions in the first place stops all
individual opinions completely. At the worst a "misbehaving" user gets
not only banned from one or the other part of the project, but from the
whole universe of the superior project.
