comment Relative value of manual vs automated testing
@mattnz I appreciate that a full answer would require knowledge of the organisation, the culture, finances etc. but conceptually I would like to know if there is any objective arguments I can use to make the case for more automated testing.

comment When to write Unit Tests : Is there any or list of terms to take right decision
I'd argue it is a good idea to write tests even for UI code. It may be hard to do, but that doesn't make it a bad idea. In those cases breaking out into integration tests (selenium, watin or whatever). If it's possible to follow some MV* pattern it becomes easier... and still worthwhile attempting. Your point about maintenance of tests is valid though, but again that may indicate a need to refactor. As with any code decision the rule of thumb applies most of the time, but not always all of the time
