Please point me to any use of strong words against of what many of us follow.

Also, I've long been contemplating having talks about the various
practices that we follow at Thoughtworks. I think some interesting
topics would be "Refactoring", "Test Driven Development", "Continuous
Integration", "What does agile mean ?", "Regression testing using
Distributed Test Harnesses" and any other buzzword-like terms that
have always mystified us.

I used to be very much against of Test Driven Development, and then
had a moment of realization about how writing tests first could be
viewed. For me, that meant considering "tests" to be a expression of
requirements, which are then met by writing necessary and sufficient
