Unfortunately, this then generates a whole pile of web pages supposedly
for "you" that then show up in Google searches and the like despite having
no information on them.  I think that's one of the things that's turned
DDs off on Launchpad; I know that it gave me a bad initial impression.

(I've since activated my account so that I can subscribe to Ubuntu bugs
for packages for which I'm also upstream.)
