Bug Description

Currently, the icon in unity's launcher bar shows a little badge displaying a number. One might think this indicates a new notification, for a follow-up comment or new private message.

Also, the icon does not offer any way to react to that percieved notification, nor does it offer any explanation as to what this badge means.

(this number shows the current link karma the user has acquired, which is hardly relevant to see at any given time)
