Writing announcements shouldn't count in karma

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Since only a minority of Nokia employees have permissions to write
announcements and the authorship is irrelevant (it's 'maemo' who speaks),
authors of announcements shouldn't get karma points because of that.
Until now I have been the one writing most if not all announcemen ts since we
have Midgard. As a result I'm the n1 in the karma list and I bet these
announcements have a lot to do with it. It's actually embarrassing.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
If there is no way to change the current behavior an alternative could be to
assign the authorship of these announcements to the admin user, hidden anyway.
Karma 1836 <- yeah, that's a big number
favourites 116.75 <- this is not a tiny number
blogs 663 <- I'm assuming you think this number includes news?
discussion 404 <- this is a big number [only 13 people have more karma than
bugzilla_reported 528 <- this is a big number [only 7 people have more
karma than this number]
quim: please don't resolve bugs as wontfix w/o giving a reason...
Even if your blogs value was 0'd, you'd still be way ahead in karma. You have
nearly 1000 more points than #2, and the two items I flagged give you more
karma than anyone else.
