offtopic

Could we all agree to modify our blog feed URLs so that only internet-tablet-related things end up on planet maemo? Competing hardware and software is okay, even, but some of the stuff that’s been on here lately is completely off topic.

When I wanted to be part of planet maemo, I setup a separate blog just for internet tablet related stuff. I realize that’s not possible for everyone, so I suggest this:

With wordpress (which I use), to narrow down the rss entries to a related category, don’t just copy and paste the regular url-for-my-blog/feed link at the bottom, but use url-for-my-blog/category/internettablet/feed/ for the url. The only difference is the category/internettablet/ part before the feed/ and you have to make it a category that you’ve been using on your blog. If you have more than one category, you could setup a yahoo pipe that concatenates all related entries and then make that what gets posted to planet maemo.

It would be much appreciated by almost everyone hooked into this feed.

Thank you for reading this nearly offtopic post.
