It is obvious that the publication of this article has raised concerns
and caused some discussions. I think a serious discussion about testing
methodologies and accessibility approaches is extremely valuable to the
WebAIM community in general.

However, as an accessibility colleague, I would like to ask people
refrain from including comments that seem to assume that others have
maligned intent or self-interest. They tend to make it more difficult
for me to discern what the core discussion is. Also, my personal
opinion is that such comments make other list members less likely to ask
questions or add their thoughts to the discussion.
