Sorry, but blogging, commenting, clicking on love symbols, posting questions 
to maemo-user and so on are not necessarily more positive contributions than 
helping people on IRC or forums or even working on some projects like liqbase.
Still it gives you the needed karma.
And I can't see why people with more than 100 karma could not try to get 
attention to just "stick it to Nokia".

Most parts of karma are about quantity and not about quality. It does not 
really tell you if the person complained or did constructive things (what ever 
that are for you).
