I second this request, although my request does not anticipate that they
*are* abuses :).  For me, it's just a matter of intellectual honesty: if
we ask Planet maintainers to propose guidelines about this topic, we
should be ready to accept the possibilities that they are not considered
abuses in their opinion.

I take this chance to remind all readers that the current guidelines are
available at http://wiki.debian.org/PlanetDebian, which has been
recently cleared linked from planet.d.o (Planet maintainers: thanks for
that!). I point that out for two reasons: 1) some recurrent complains
about planet.d.o posts, other than "commercial spam", are clearly
addressed in the guidelines already; 2) highlight that current
guidelines are not clear cut (and that is not necessarily bad IMHO),
there are already behaviors which are considered OK-ish if applied
sporadically and a bit less so if applied recurrently.
