Change status to confirmed when marked as "affects me too"

Asked by flrtx

What does the cnofirmed status actually mean? I thought it means, someone else is experiencing the same bug. So why isn't the status of a bug not changed to confirmed when I mark a bug as "affects me too"?

They are not quite the same:
Confirmed means "a member of the community believes that this report describes a genuine bug in enough detail that a developer could start work on a fix."

This is stronger than "it affects me also".
