comment Possible holes in a spam-registration prevention approach?
So I would have to register a domain, just to post/read content to your site? It all sounds extremly cumbersome just to avoid spam. These days I dont even visit sites that require me to register just to read. There's always an open alternative.

comment Why are you choosing XYZ? - Is this valid question in interview?
You could answer like one person did on an interview I was in: "Because the commute is short". He got the job.

comment Should developers enter bugs into the bug tracking system?
At one job we had two different bug tracking systems. One was for the bugs the customer/testers found and one for the ones we found ourselves. Reason was that we had different budgets for maintenance and new development. Bugs we programmers found was considered new development. A bit annoying, but since we were measured in alot of different ways, it was the best way to handle it for us.

comment Adding conditional toggles into methods for running tests
Well, it depends on what you are checking. At one time I was maintaining a perl script that was depending on some sleep statements. To make it possible to test, I added a flag and if it was set I skipped the sleeps. Same functionality, but when testing I didnt have to wait for 30 seconds. Generally speaking though, dont add flags and use mocks like suggested.

comment What hurts maintainability?
+1, very true. That's one of the things I like about Test Driven Design, it lets you know the state of coupling/cohesion. If you need to start each test with 10 lines of mocking/stubbing, you might have a problem with these things.
