in thread A danger of test driven development.

I think that with test driven design it is possible to write code to pass tests rather than code that fulfils the intended purpose. The presence of a safety net may make you a little careless on the high-wire.

Yeah, I see that sometimes. It often comes from people thinking they're finished when all the tests pass, rather than when they can't write a failing test.
