The word "votes" in a bug summary should not be a hyperlink to the 
votehelp.html, because it draws much more attention than the number of votes 
(which is what you really want to click on).  If someone wants to find out what 
votes are, they can click on "Help! I don't understand this voting stuff" after 
clicking on the number of votes.

weird, this bug is showing up on my Browser-General search.

No, this would make things inconsistent with the rest of the fields.

Instead, unhyperlinkify the number of votes and add a "Show Votes In Detail"
hyperlink before the "Vote for this bug" hyperlink.  It'll be easier to click on
too.

Do we really need the "for bug 30597" part?  We don't have "Summary for bug
30597"!

acceptable now or not.

As a long time user of bugzilla, I still find myself hastily pressing the Votes
link on occasion (I wonder how many other users do it). How about unlinking it
completely and adding a "Voting Help" link at the end of the line?
