Discussion on: Caught Red-Handed!

This is precisely why I always use "we" instead of "I" when talking about bugs. It makes the person who caused it feel more comfortable discussing it. As a team doing code reviews, "we" all missed it, not one of us, but all of us! Pointing fingers only causes mistrust and is likely to cause the same kind of bugs again.

I totally agree with you, Samuel. Especially in agile projects, we should always say "we" instead of "I". We're working as a team and bug is always "our" not "my" problem. As it is mentioned in the article, every team member failed: devs,QAs. We shouldn't take this personally. Maybe this advice helps someone.
