Is it not possible to flag blog posts with their relevance towards Maemo
(i.e. on the part of the blogger), and only pick up those which are
marked as Maemo-specific (on the news page)? Most (afaict) of the
Thumbs-downs come from off-topic blog posts, which really should be
voted down as they are simply noise, and have nothing to do with Maemo.
