In the (very) past there was someone posting a ton of "little" things of
various, entirely Debian unrelated, "entries". More like, "twitter" or
"facebook" style, than blogging, ie not even full written. Such a thing
isn't wanted, thats plain flooding. But full postings with basically any
(commonly accepted[1]) non-spam content, including non-Debian one, is fine.

Planet is a means to get to know more about people without attaching a
rfid chip and a surveillance camera to each DD. And if I want to know
what such a DD does in Debian - I have dozens of other services for that
already, so yeah, add more personal things to planet... :)

[1] sod it, im not running into that minefield of defining commonly
    accepted here. :)
