...therefore having a link to planet mozilla seems a very bad idea to me.

Basically it links to recent Mozilla blog posts, blogs are a personal thing and therefore might link to an article that you'd not want a possible new user to read. e.g. "Is Firefox going NUTS or what?!?" was a post glazou did about the decision to remove view source from Firefox (in the end that idea was scrapped anyway), it's good these concerns are voiced but on a page promoting Firefox you don't want articles like that.

The link to MozillaZine will provide easy enough access to the blogs for people who are interested, so I think it's probably a good idea to remove planet mozilla from the front page so that bloggers can voice their opinion without having to worry about scaring away new users.
