comment On testing the testers
as a professional I must realistically assess the situation, if I don't frame anyone and keep those experiments private I think it may be useful instrument. In that particular case I knew that nothing would go live without me. Funny thing that in the end we still found couple of bugs actually after project went live.

comment On testing the testers
There were no immediate customers, it was public web site. We always received a lot of feedback from users, so variations were not really significant. Very small majority of users were paying so it is not always trivial to judge whether many clients suddenly became significantly unhappy. Lost revenue is also not immediately evident.

comment On testing the testers
"don't do it again" I don't see any harm in playing such joke if I keep it to myself. I did it solely to understand if I can rely on QA or not. My job is to deliver quality product, from that moment I just assumed that I need to be my own QA, test more, write more unit tests etc.

@Snowman yeah in this case it is to check if the program halts (produces incorrect result) at given input which is trivial.

@Snowman if speaking seriously it is exponentially easier to verify that bug exists than to verify that it doesn't, so testing the tester-testers is much easier and PM or teamlead can perfectly do it.

@MasonWheeler yeah you need a way to test that tester-testers indeed left a bug for testers. Or maybe they made a bug in bug code so that it negated it. Complicated stuff indeed.

@SJuan76 to certain extend, I would even say to high. But I present a specific case which I failed to resolve and still don't know how I should have done it.

comment Keep user and user profile in different tables?
Even bloated user class is still not necessarly a God Class. It may get bloated with user related logic (which may get complicated in big projects), but if it doesn't incorporate unrelated logic I don't see big problem. I am not sure how breaking 1 class into 2 will solve said god class problem.

@MichaelT I am thinking about creating sort of generalized framework which will provide User model.

@MichaelT thanks! Interesting that there is no consensus at all linked questions.
