Yes, please.

Despite the negativity there seems to be quite a few interesting ideas
that have come out of the thread:

- kill and consider procedure (maybe requiring a FAS login to trigger,
using a flag link or something)

- an easy & consistent way to get contact information for each poster
listed on the planet

- an optional planet feed that has fedora & tech only related blog posts

- a FAS account aging requirement for posting rights (maybe a separate
planet that, if you hae a mentor, they can watch and you can graduate
from? For example new ambassadors could be added to an ambassadors
planet first..... if there is some faux paus people reading will better
know who the poster is and more easily know how to contact them etc)
