I was surprised this morning seeing that my account had just exceeded 200 reputation and was awarded +100! Apparently this is the so-called ‘association bonus’, which also caused my reputation in Ask Ubuntu to be catapulted to 101 (from 1!)
I can't say I wasn't flattered, but why did Stack Exchange do such a thing? I mean, I can understand that my contribution to Maths S.E. should be respected by Ask Ubuntu (hence the bonus), but I haven't really done anything important in Ask Ubuntu to be respected, and rewarded, here.
Should the community think again that kind of bonus (which automatically rewards some users for having an extra account which they don't really use)?
