What a clueless moron that guy is David.

And I agree with you. And if QA fails, that is the companies fault.

Uh huh ... right.  Blame the programmer.  Not the vendor that failed to
perform adequate QA on the software.

Program bugs are inevitable ... that's the nature of things.  Those
bugs, however, should be caught before the code is released.  That's
what QA is all about.

JMHO, of course.
