Few days ago I changed my email in maemo profile and garage account to 
be the same as the one I use for mailing list and still have 0 in 
discussion column (related to maemo mailing lists?). Bug?

Having same e-mail account everywhere is not very nice. Please consider 
allowing more of them. At least mailing list vs rest (maemo profile, 
garage). Mailing list has relatively high volume so people may want to 
handle it differently. Currently I changed it to be the same (mainly to 
test it and see how much points it will give me) but I don't plan to 
keep it that way. Also more addresses would be useful to allow future 
changes. I suppose if one changes e-mail for sending messages to the 
list, his karma for list will start from scratch, right?

Overall this karma thing may be useful to push people to be more active 
so this looks like good thing. It may also result in worse quality vs 
quantity ratio in blogs, mailing list etc. Let's see how much of cheap 
karma hunting we'll get.
