I don't want to turn this into "we do", "we don't" ping-pong.

What I mean is that once you are syndicated in Planet, you can post
whatever you want.

That's why we have people posting all sorts of things that are not
related to GNOME:  music festivals, science fiction books, recipes,
vacation photos, political editorials, the roof of my house, "dear
lazyweb", etc.

And that's a *good* thing.  I'm as annoyed as anyone by certain kinds of
posts, but I can simply ignore them (or make my tools ignore them - wish
