The default has been, and remains so with the new BZ instance,  that when
you comment--the CC List: "checkbox"  to "Add me to CC list" is selected by
default--you have to specifically exclude your BZ account from being added
to a bug. 

And, as you revisit bugs that you on the CC list (while logged-in) you will
see a count of CC users "including you" if you are on the CC list for the

If it doesn't show you as on the list, and you are not the Reporter, you
will NOT receive update notifications for that BZ issue.  That is consistent
