Ok, seems too much effort.

I somewhat dislike always having a lingering account @ KDE that I never
use, check or do anything with

Could you add the privacy link on I'm sure everyone at
KDE knows what it does and what it is for. But for me, it feels weird
(as in: assume it would be an error to go from site to
a KDE site).

If I read

I see something about ' breaking this when used in your password. You're
escaping everything going to SQL/LDAP I assume? Gets me a bit paranoid.

On the privacy policy, it mentions under 'You are a user':
  Full name (incl.titles): d
  Email address d
  Username d 

Where 'd' stands for: 
  'You will see this info from developers'.

I don't really understand this, as there is another 'You are a
developer' option. So if I am a GNOME person, I'll fall under 'user'.
But why have a user section and mention that full name/email address and
username is shared if you're a developer? Doesn't seem logical
especially as you mention that details wont be shared:)
