I have noticed a pattern while working on several software projects: the big majority of the bugs reported had a high/very-high priority. I asked some colleagues about why this may be happening, and they mentioned that if a bug doesn't haven't that level of priority it is very rare that the Bug gets developer attention, which indeed makes sense.
So, I wanted to know if this problem is common or if I just had bad luck. I did a quick Google search, and I found that some teams implement Bug Reporting guidelines or have a separate "Bug Triage" team. If you have faced and solved this issue, what was the approach that worked for you?
This question is specifically about the "Priority Inflation" problem: If you face the scenario and what meassures result effective against this problem.
