Is it Wise To Aim for 100% NTF ?

I'll start w/the disclaimer that Kevin is both a good friend and co-worker of mine, but I found this both entertaining and useful and I thought people here would appreciate it:   

Hope you like it as much as I did.

Fitnesse has always seemed notionally fictious to me.

Working for a company that's in the middle of getting ISO 9000 certified, I really appreciated your friend's advice  ;^)

Someone modded away my last post on this article. Did the moderator even read the link? It's satire! The whole article is a spoof! FMA recommends you strive for 100% NTF? Follow the links:

FMA - Fictional Metrics Association

NTF - Notional Temperance Factor is a purely fictional metric used for rhetorical purposes.

It's more a fable than a spoof. I wanted to write something about the misuse of metrics without getting too caught up in whether a particular metric was useful or not.
