so, to summarize and comment the complaints i have seen in the latest blog postings on http://planet.gnome.org and its comments:
i DO want people to post about politics, if they want to. i DO want people to blog about vegetarianism, if they want to. i DO want people to post about what they have done on their day, if they want to. i DO like people with strong opinions or positions, otherwise life and its discussions would become pretty boring. in general, i DO want people to blog about everything they would like to blog about, because it is their own blog. tbf, danielk, if you don’t like this, i kindly ask you to please just ignore those postings. nobody forces you to read every posting here, just skip them – i also skip postings, and i guess nearly everybody does. planet gnome is not exclusively for coding stuff, but about the life of those people behind gnome, and gnome IS people, and of course opinions and positions differ, but that’s perhaps the part that keeps gnome an interesting project for me: it’s not only about code, but about people. thanks.
