This should be *very* visible in the post itself. We generally require
Team Blogs, like this is, to prominently state who made it. Good
examples are the DebConf and the Debian Sysadmin blog, where its

"Blog title" <Posted by HUMAN NAME>

Well, the way is simple: Planet only reads rss feeds. Setup your blog to
have a seperate feed with only those tags included that you want to
appear on Planet.

As the post was still visible now I just disabled Debian Med in planets
config. Feel free to reenable it as soon as
 a) this "spammy" post no longer appears in the feed planet reads, and
 b) its clearly visible who made the post.
