Yeah, tough call. I can see what you are saying, but somehow you need to find a happy medium. From what I have read on this forum there generally seems to be a lack of testers anyway. This, I presume, has lead to charting groups having to play-test each others work to get them approved. The old you scratch my back and I scratch yours method. However this fails once charting groups pay people to test because those without the money cannot pay for testers. This is where I think you have a big problem.
Wish there was a simple solution to it for you. Politics can be a real problem (for want of a stronger word) when money is involved.
