comment Fixes hard to verify because of poor quality bug reports
Of course the situation here is not wanted and sometimes your first comment is the best you can do. About the trust: I trust that the developers are able to analyze the situation and decide if it's enough to make small fix or if larger changes are needed. My job is then to verify that the fix actually covers all the situations and that it didn't break anything else. I find bugs made by all our developers so I'm not passing testing based on their word.

comment Load testing only on stable code?
I would say that whatever may have load in the real situation. Back-end is almost always good candidate. On the otherhand slowness of GUI may be really irritating even if components work in the end.

comment Radiobutton group with NO default option: bug / acceptable / it depends?
@PeterL. Hmm, do you want to order () book, () audiobook, () DVD? Accidentally selecting any default choice would probably make people angry, but it wouldn't be catastrophe. Do you want to pay () by bill, () online, (x) never? The default choice is easy to make in this case. And your age case is actually a good example where we can't know what is the correct default. If the question is about life insurance, it is ok to require an answer. If it's just statistics for survey, it may be ok to accept empty answer.

I agree with the answer. To put it differently, don't provide default answer if the user needs to make a conscious decision when answering and it is ok to give an error message if no selection has been made.

@user246 Why shouldn't usability be tested? I think it's very important thing.

comment Software Testing as a career path? Becoming a test architect
As checking that sorting algorithm works correctly is something anyone can do, no-one should need to do it but it should be automated. Testing this kind of things manually is boring and not worth it. Manual testing should be about looking at combinations and patterns, thinking ease-of-use and end user, challenging decisions, exploring...
