You know that I'm not talking about automated testing. The context of the original post was about manual testing (by humans) and whether that should be done within a development team or separate from it. Agile sprints do NOT allow for independent testing; instead Agile has the conceit that automated testing is sufficient. It is not.

Over dependence on automated testing has led to a decrease in software quality. There is no substituting someone using the software like my father. Moreover, even in automated tests, you can test only that which you anticipated or for which the software was designed. (Such as suddenly moving the software to an international market.
