It's not your job to make your bug voting habit the way runrev wants it to be. it's runrevs task to make the vote system work in a way that is useful to them.

If the current system is not useful to them, then:

a.) your votes are superfluous, as they ignore votes, or use them only in border cases, and you should vote for whatever you want (or not at all if that's your thing).
b.) you should vote for things you want to vote for, because at least then the votes are useful to you
c.) or they should change it to work as they intend, and until then, you can use it to vote on things you find important

or maybe it does work as they want it to, in which case you should vote as you see fit ;)

But then, maybe you shouldn't listen to strangers on the internet...

I guess I was voting on the question, "Is this an important bug to check out?" rather than "Is this a bug that's causing you fits and ought to be fixed?" Seems to me those might both be useful questions to be voted on.

The team would like only those people who actually have the problem to vote on it, and those people should also add a comment to the report giving more info about their own experience. That gives the team a good idea of how widespread the problem is and helps to pinpoint the issue.
