The people who work at VmWare also very often posted (and still post)
about their work and appear on Planet GNOME. There's nothing wrong with
that. Same goes for Nokia and many other companies involved.
Forbidding those contributors to talk about their work goes directly and
philosophically against the "Planet GNOME is a window into the world,
work and lives of GNOME hackers and contributors" slogan of the project.
You see that word "work" there? Right.
