Your test team is a challenge - not a safety blanket!

It seems that the 'us and them' relationship between devs and testers is gradually dying out. But I'm not so sure that this was entirely a bad thing. I've even experienced developers almost relying on their testers as a safety net. You need a bit of healthy competition.

A while ago I heard a developer say:
"That'll do. If it's not right then Test will spot it..."
While I appreciate this vote of confidence, it felt as if he was just passing the buck.
