Default Bug affecting you should automatically subscribe to the bug

Hi all,
*If a certain bug affects me I get this option where I say yes I am affected by the bug.
Shouldn't that make me automatically subscribe the bug.

I don't want to again subscribe to the bug.


I know some people may not want to subscribe to the bug, which is also valid.

Perhaps a solution would be to have both the things on the same page when I click for
bug affecting

Perhaps somebody has filed a bug or not, if somebody does please subscribe me to the bug as well.

I'm shirishag75 on launchpad or Shirish Agarwal.

Thanx in advance. --

I've been thinking about this, and I'm not sure whether this is
necessary. Sure, the UI for marking a bug as affecting you should
change so that it requires less interaction (and it is changing), but
if we make it possible for you to mark the bug as affecting you
without going to a new page, it means that we won't be able to offer
you a choice whether to subscribe or not. Bugs that you mark as
affecting you are potentially also bugs with higher volume of traffic,
and I think many people would rather not subscribe to them because
they rather not receive a lot of mail.

Tough question - it would be great to hear more opinions.

Tom

I for one would not want to be subscribed as I get too much mail as it
is! :-) I would like to tell the developers "Hey, I been bitten by
this too so please find some time to look into it" unless it's
something that is completely blocking me (like bzr failing or my
ethernet card not working) in which case I'd like to subscribe.

I do like the idea of allowing someone to subscribe the branch while
also indicating that affects me.
