comment What are the most popular bug tracking tools?
I'm unclear as to why the popularity of certain trackers over others is of any use. A question comparing features I could understand.

comment How do I convince management that we need a formal QA department?
@Lyndon Vrooman: I have discovered that the next challenge after the one in the question is how to explain to management that QA occasionally miss bugs, in the same way that developers sometimes write bugs. Humanity is an imperfection we're all blessed with.

comment What's the difference between “testing” and “quality assurance”?
@testerab: I agree completely. You're absolutely spot on. We still get to make fun of ourselves though. I do see why you think that might confuse people as to our professionalism.

comment What's the difference between “testing” and “quality assurance”?
@testerab: I could use 20,000 words to describe testing, including functional, UI, dataflow and integrity, hard algo, performance, scalibilty etc. I promise you'll hear all about testing from me as the site grows. For this particular sentence, that was what I came up with. I apologise for any hurt feeling of whelmness.
