Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

Unlikely. If Shuttleworth's faithful followers were behind it, the spam would probably all include links to Amazon, hoping the hits would earn money for Canonical, and Ubuntu One trophies for the spammers.

Aha, yeah I remember when those were announced. I could not for the life of me see any reason why that exists. Well same for KDE activities as well. Makes me confused. :)

KDE activities?
That's a new one for me. What do they award? Gear-and-K symbols?

:shock:
I am sure I know which members of that forum the trophies are targeted at. Although beans and trophies strikes me as a little over-kill.

Tramadol wrenched snick and Norvasc, whatever they are, and Acetaminophen and Soma chairs.

So much for the butnut conspiracy theory.

Activities isn't an awards thing, just a useless feature bloating code. It lets you run a different plasma setup during your current session. This would be useful perhaps for folk that use plasma a LOT. I personally don't give a crap about the feature, nor see any valid use case for real people. But I am going off topic, sorry. :)
