I also got the same feeling when first reading it, although I'm sure 
Sachin has only the best intentions raising it for discussion.

I feel a combination of setting the correct issue priority (based on the 
impact to the user, e.g. a crash with no practical workaround would be a 
Critical or Blocker) and use of the voting mechanism could identify hot 

We may need to encourage our user base to vote for bugs (educate them 
about the voting feature of JIRA) for this to work.
