Hey @gravitystorm - Just wanted to bump this issue again, as it relates to some of the feedback we received from TeachOSM.  

Some of the content on the diaries is problematic for teachers who want to use OSM in their classes.  (For examples, please ping me directly, I'd prefer not to link to it).  

We heard from several teachers that any software that they use in school must go through a review process.  This is reasonable.  While most diaries are fine, it would be sad if the day that somebody was reviewing openstreetmap.org, they happen to click the diary link and see a lot of spam or inappropriate content.

I feel like the spam problem alone is reason enough to move the diaries off site into a separate domain from openstreetmap.org, but just adding this as another reason.

_Background: I worked with TeachOSM recently on an event in which we trained geography teachers how to use OSM. Several of the teachers have already incorporated OSM into their curricula, and provided helpful feedback on ways that we can support them. This is one of a few related issues for discussion based on this feedback. Thanks!_
