We have multiple Debian planets in other languages. I think we should
create a common template that allows people to quickly switch between
different planets in different languages. I do like the idea of
single-language feeds by default.

That is the current case. The only posts I have hiden or commented out
without explicitly contacting the poster are posts who who have
accidentally flooded planet.

In fact, if a person is actively involved in Debian, I would still be
alright with the feed had little or no Debian related content. Putting
a human face on a co-worker is, IMHO, related to Debian working well.
Removals happen for repeatedly flooding planet and should be reversed
when someone can demonstrate that the chronic problem has been fixed.
