Yes, every single one, not one exception. It was kind of scary, frankly, like they’d been hypnotized or something.

Look, the whole idea is basically wrong. The important thing is to test our work but the idea that we have full responsibility for testing our own work is just nuts. I’ve written why enough times and if you don’t get it then there is nothing more I can do.

If you disagree, then make your case. But nobody has been able to do more than rage and say “your wrong” (sic) or make crazy-ass assertions like “writing tests after development doesn’t work.” It’s like arguing with Second Amendment crazies whose devotion to guns gets stronger when they run into a solid justification for gun control, like a cordwood pile of dead kids.

When you guys say things like the tests are the design, sorry, I’m not even dignifying junk like that with an answer.
