comment Should testers approve releases, or just report on tests?
@ErnestFriedman-Hill It sounds like you are describing Negative Requirements and these are what is missing from your functional requirement documents. A Negative Requirement is an explicit statement about what a system will NOT do, and can be as acceptable as regular requirements. If these are declared then their test cases against Negative Requirements are not valid.

comment Should testers approve releases, or just report on tests?
That is a real problem but I am not sure if that is necessarily the OP's problem though. My interpretation is that somehow the testers are interpreting new requirements that weren't originally defined.

comment Should testers approve releases, or just report on tests?
I voted this down because I fundamentally disagree with several points and assumptions that you are making. I disagree that QA shouldn't have authority to veto a release because many QA groups also operate in a User Acceptance role as well. Furthermore, I disagree with the assumption that testers are technical people. Not always the case, not every group that releases software can afford a full QA team, so that role can fall on business analysts that may not be technical at all.

comment Improve Bad testing
Excellent answer! It would be neat to see this answer summarized in a decision tree, so I can print it out and pin it to the cube walls of our QA team ;-)

Please consider expanding on your answer as it really doesn't explain anything. Answers that don't explain anything or provide some context will be deleted. Thank you.

Complexity is a highly subjective metric, one programmers complexity is another programmers simplicity.
