Someone suggested karma for mailing list subscriptions (I can't seem  
to find the email, so apologies for no attributing). So, a proposal:

Somewhere between 2-5 karma points are awarded for every maemo.org  
mailing list subscription. That includes: maemo-users, maemo- 
developers, maemo-community, maemo-commits, and maemo-announce.

So a user subscribed to -users, -developers and -community will get  
between 6 and 15 karma points.

Niels/Henri, can we get some numbers on what percentage of  
subscriptions bounce? I'm thinking it _could_ be worthwhile to  
invalidate the karma of subscriptions who are bouncing, but I'm not  
sure if it's worth the trouble of the details of a technical  
implementation. . . .
