Do you use votes on Bugzilla tickets to help you make decisions?

I noticed today that my votes on some bugs had been removed. Visiting

So I guess as a result of this discussion, voting was disabled on some products?

No problem with me, but would have been nice with some sort of
announcement (sorry if I missed it!)
