Test automation can be a wonderful thing, but adding tests thoughtlessly, having unrealistic expectations of test automation, using a single tool or framework for everything and automating everything from a single perspective can quickly lead to sluggish, bloated automation. A lot of these problems can be fixed and even prevented by asking yourself the right questions before you add another check to your existing test automation suite.
