I had to read this sentence several times to make sure I parsed it
correctly. I'll say what I think you mean, and then you can correct me
I think you are saying that any test that is not being done manually
should be automated, because otherwise there will be too many tests
that are not getting done. Is that right?
I would also like to point out the Pragmatic Programmers' article on
(http://media.pragprog.com/articles/jan_02_auto.pdf) which makes a lot
of the same points, expands upon them, and generalizes them to
/everything/ we do, not just testing.
