We encountered the following fixed bug today. Call it Bug100.
“The word ‘Unknown’ is spelled incorrectly in the dialog the user sees when sending an error report.”
Bug100 was spun off the larger issue (i.e., why the error was thrown). Bug100 was logged by a BA after noticing the spelling error, and easily fixed by a developer.
Unfortunately, the developer could not determine an easy way to trigger the error message described by Bug100. After a few failed attempts by the tester, the tester and I had a brief discussion. We decided to rubber stamp Bug100 and spend our time elsewhere. “Rubber stamp” is the expression we use to describe situations where the tester does not really do any testing, but they still move the bug report to the “Tested” status so its fix can proceed to production. We make a note on the bug report that says nothing was tested.
