I asked some questions on Ask Ubuntu some which got me a few Famous Question badges. Then something happened there all got closed as duplicates.
After seeing this I started to question did I deserve it? Sometimes I even try to virtually remove them, like I may tell someone I only have 2 gold badges when I really have 5 pretending to removing the 3 Famous Question badges.
The thing is I didn't do it just to get the badges. In fact, I didn't even know there existed when I asked those question. Lets call it an accident, so no cheating involved.
