Publicly flogging each of the people identified in Darrel's post seem a good idea to me, with a few additions. One lash for the tester. Two for the QA Analyst/lead tester. Four (each) for the developer(s) involved. Ten for the Application Development Manager. Twelve for the designer. Eighteen for the BA. Twentyfour for the PM. Fifty for whomever mandated the deadline and Ninetynine for whomever dreamed up punishing testers for an error.

I'd also suggest adding anyone involved in requirements gathering and defintion. Also, all participants in the project in an ancillary way. In fact, the only people who should not be flogged are the administrative assistants/secretaries who tend to do more measurable work than many people in a lot of organizations.

If you need to know where a good cat-of-nine-tails can be had, let me know. I also know a former bosun's mate who could do the job properly.
