comment How is Selenium different from other GUI automation tools?
On the basis of "No X vs Y questions" I'm voting to close. We reached the same conclusion on sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/245/qtp-vs-selenium

comment Where can I find some insightful cartoons and/or humorous content about software testing?
@Justin I respect your difference of opinion on the matter. I still feel it's inappropriate (although secretly I'm hoping there's answers just because I enjoy funny things...) In regard to the precedent, there are many questions on StackOverflow (especially from its early history, which that question is) that have been overlooked by the moderating staff which was much smaller at the time of that posting. The 'rules of the road' for StackOverflow have also evolved since then. I would also say that while there are parallels, the rules of SQA are defined by SQA and its users, not StackOverflow.

Furthermore, reposting a closed topic is generally taboo. If you feel it was closed incorrectly, the proper thing to do would be to edit the question to rephrase, vote to re-open (if you can) and/or flag for moderator attention to indicate that you feel it no longer is a close-worthy question.

comment Where can I find some insightful cartoons and/or humorous content about software testing?
I have to agree with Shog's closing of the first post. At first I thought it was great. Then I re-read the guidelines, and I don't feel it's appropriate. This fails the "why versus how" test, the "long not short answer" test, the "opinion backed by fact" test, and in my opinion, also the "more than mindless social fun" test.

comment How do you fit regression into Kanban?
Because nothing says "It's a great week" than manual testing Monday 9am! :-D

comment How do you prepare yourself for a testing position?
Your assumption is a safe one to make. Unfortunately, it's incorrect. As another question of mine states, 1.5 million lines of code, 0 automated tests. I'm trying to get something rolling, and anticipate that I will end up transitioning into a testing position if it does roll.

+1 for the links. I'm going to give that weekendtesting a shot (just as soon as my wife thinks it's a good idea for me to spend 8 hours on a weekend testing an application. Hmm.... well I'll give it a shot when I can!)

comment How do you prepare yourself for a testing position?
I see. This does great about explaining what I need. I'm curious, how do I get it? What can I do to get myself into that mindset?

So what you're saying is, cutting support means happy customers! That's a win win situation!

comment What are the most popular bug tracking tools?
While I don't consider it to be off-topic, I do consider it to fall under the "Not a real question" category. I wouldn't consider it answerable in its current form.

comment What is the difference between “automated testing” and “automated regression testing”?
You know it's ironic. As programmers (there's a little programmer in all developers, QA, PMs, DBAs, etc) we are taught that what we say to a computer must adhere to strict syntax and grammar rules. There is no debate about what a statement means when we code. You would think we would apply the same standard to inter-geek (for lack of a better word) communication! Why do we let ourselves get taken by buzzwords and let the blogosphere define our vocabulary?! Where is the standards committee for agile definitions?!

comment Testing Unfamiliar Software
Keep in mind that you don't necessarily need either one to be a great tester. You just need to keep a sharp eye for how to break things! Technical ability will give you insight into how to break the program, and domain knowledge will give you insight into how to break the requirements. Both are very useful. But if I had to choose, I'd pick good "tester sense" over either or both any day.
