comment What are the best practices for error seeding
@Dez yes, I agree it is a symptom of communication problems. Sometimes communication works best when people are in proximity, which of course is not possible when the team is remote. These problems can be mitigated with the right effort. Will the organization invest that effort? Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

comment What are the best practices for error seeding
Welcome to SQA, J.R. Aside from D and U, it may also be interesting to know the number of false positives (the number of reports that turned out not to be bugs). As I understand it, this can be as big an issue with outsourced QA as the bug detection rate.

comment What is UAT Protocol?
@momo I cannot speak for Phil, but I do not think he intended to be rude. Many questions in SQA fall into this category: someone uses a term when communicating with the OP, and then OP asks us what that person meant. The answer is always the same: we know how we use that term, but our opinion does not matter. If you really need an answer, the best policy is to say something like, "I am sorry, but you used a term that people use in different ways. What do you mean when you use that term?"

comment What is UAT Protocol?
Agreed. If you are worried about looking stupid in front of the customer, you can always say, "At our company, when we say UAT Protocol, we mean...", and then say something that sounds reasonable to you (and that you are prepared to actually do). I think Joe's guess is reasonable, but you should decide for yourself.

Have you asked your manager (or assigned you the CFT role) what they think CFT means?

comment What are good link recommendation sites for testers?
Perhaps I was nitpicking. If anyone wants to discuss this further, let's move the thread to Meta.

comment What are good link recommendation sites for testers?
@Buu Nguyen Thank you for the clarification. Would you mind defining, in a non-subject way, what a good link recommendation site is? That way, people who answer your question will use "good" in the same way that you do. "Good" is usually considered a subject term, but perhaps you do not mean it that way.

comment Is the source code required when using Selenium-RC with Grails?
I am not sure I understand your question. Did something happen that suggested to you that using Selenium with grails might require accessing your web application's source code?

comment What are good link recommendation sites for testers?
Hi Buu Ngyuyen, welcome to SQA. You asked a reasonable question, but it is not the sort we encourage here. Please take a look at sqa.stackexchange.com/faq#dontask for some guidelines on the kinds of questions we encourage/discourage. That said, I would like to think that this is a good site to ask specific questions about testing. I hope to see more questions (and answers) from you here.
