Many of these people are and have been top GNOME people.

You'd be insane if you wanted to remove them from the planet.

If you want to destroy GNOME as a community, you're on the right track.

This is nonsense. The planet-gnome slogan is:

Planet GNOME is __ a window into the world, work and lives __ of GNOME
hackers and contributors.

This is what made the planet a successful project, initiated by Jeff
Waugh (who you propose for removal ^).

If you want to fundamentally change the planet, why don't you start your
own planet and convince the world that yours is better?

Nothing prevents you from starting your own planet.

I'm pretty sure that you can even get a neat subdomain under GNOME's
from the admins.
