The planet feed may lose its relevance which is not what we want.

Most planet feeds (including ours, I believe) have fairly strict
policies about the type of content they aggregate. I am on three planet
feeds at the moment:
If I were to overload Python or Mozilla with Plone posts, I would expect
to be removed. So it's not as much about censorship (which is a bit of a
loaded term) as it is about proper netiquette. In Plone's case, we
expect folks to post things that are "relevant", for some value of
relevant. I don't think we are too strict about enforcement, but I've
seen some cases in the past where folks have been asked to limit their
posts via a plone-specific tag. I think this is reasonable.
Of course the occasional off-topic post is rarely a concern for anyone.
It's more the egregious offenders we are talking about.
