Rules for Planet GNOME?

Recently, Richard Stallman has suggested on the foundation-list that Planet GNOME is not effectively representing the free software movement, and that rules should be developed to bar "favorable mention" of proprietary software.

I've put together a small survey on SurveyMonkey in which I hope to get as many people to participate as possible. Mr. Stallman has raised "supporting free software" as being a critical obligation of the Planet, since GNOME is part of the GNU Project; Philip van Hoof, among others, has suggested that perhaps we need to re-examine that relationship.

The thread on the foundation-list can be found archived here., in the thread, "Code of Conduct and Foundation membership". Mr. Stallman's contributions begin here.

The survey can be found here.
