It may be easier for you to recognize it as a Planet problem to think 
about the opposite effect: people not reading Planet because they choose 
to invest their time elsewhere.
By the way, I was once a Planet KDE reader, though if I remember 
correctly, I stopped reading when I stopped using Akregator, not because 
I found the signal-to-noise ratio insufficient.

But denying the problem or blaming it on others won't help. Making the 
existing compromise discoverable is constructive. We can go further 
identifying and implementing actual solutions.
