So, your point would be?

It's so easy to be a bomb-thrower on the list, isn't it? What is your
recommendation for solving the problem of invalid usability tests? Give up?
What constructive thing can you add to the discussion?
============================================
Invalid usability testing, I thought I made clear, is not the issue.
What I said that real usability would demonstrate the utter worthlessness
of about 90% of the online help systems delivered in the past 5 years.
