Yup. You can find the bug at

Right. We don't pay attention to the length of the cc list (in
general), but it does give me an opportunity to reach those who have
expressed interest more specifically than sending an untargetted
e-mail to this list.

Anybody is free to cast votes as they like ofcourse. When I'm looking
for the amount of interest in an issue, I do look for signs of
interest. This includes votes, cc-list length and number of different
people commenting on the issue. But that only works when I'm
interested in solving the issue, not for issue selection (ie, it's not
like I'm going to select the issue with the most votes to work on).
