But how is that problem of the Planet? If the reader decides to
read something, then the reader can't blame the medium for giving
them the opportunity to read that. It's always up to readers to decide
whether they want to read something or not. The choice is theirs already.

That said, I also see no issue with occasional not-entirely-KDE-related
posts on the Planet. If I'm not interested in a post, I simply scroll
past it.
