Well I think it's quicker to file a dup than search through the entire database (using the awful Trac interface, but that's another topic), to then comment "hey, me too!". And let's also consider false positives (people thinking this ticket describes their bug, when it doesn't).

I think it's a better idea to let the team triage the bugs, since they know about the big picture.
