Reminds me of the Simpsons episode where they screentested Mel Gibson's movie. :)

The problem with Kleenex tests, imo, is that if you try to get *everyone* to like your movie/game, you end up with mush. Because everyone has different opinions about things. If no one likes your movie, that's a big problem. But if you get a lot of people who like it, and a lot of people who don't, you've probably made a good movie.

Of course, mush might be more financially rewarding. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind only made $34 million.

Eh, I just turn every vaguely-QA related post I read into a reason to yell about how badly QA is treated.
