Other than the highly amusing use of the emphatic real testing, these arguments are in the end orthogonal to the problem they purport to solve. Arguing like this actually takes us away from the heart of what testing really is. In the end testing is simple.
- Create a state in the system you're testing
- Perform some action
- Identify the resulting state of the system.
All the other arguments are about how we perform those steps, or what we do with the information we've gathered.
So let's stop arguing about whether something is testing, and start arguing about what we really can improve - how we're testing.
