The annoying flurry of congratulatory e-mails following some successful event. The kudostorm is exacerbated by people "replying to all" on a large distro list again and again.
After the successful network upgrade last night, there was a kudostorm all morning. 50 annoying e-mails all saying "great job guys" from people I don't even know, about an upgrade I didn't work on!
