I just saw that Bryce noticed this too: in

he said

        "in the form of the "This bug doesn't affect me (change)" text
        and link on every bug. [...] Another issue is that the link just
        isn't that noticeable. I'll leave it to usability experts to
        work out how best to improve it, but it definitely needs a
        re-think so it's a bit more obvious, especially for casual
        launchpad visitors."

And here is an ineresting comment:

        "Launchpad should have a mee-too counter first. Currently even
        if I use the "This bug affects me too" link, I don't have any
        feedback about the amount of people affected in total. So it's
        quite useless now. Seeing the "me-too" counter increase will
        certainly appeal to many mee-tooers :)"
Can the bugs be sorted by "me too"? Searched for with a treshold? This
is getting offtopic here.
