You think the problem with celebrity users will be solved by having pg take a bigger role?

I think the way to remove the low-value posts would be to ban all the self-promoting bloggers; daringfireball, 37signals, 42floors, asmartbear... we don't seem to get these problematic stories either from "proper" news sites (even techcrunch et al) or from bloggers unrelated to YC who don't post here regularly. Of course, that would be a dramatic change to the character of HN, and I suspect pg himself would end up on the wrong side of such an exclude list.
