Your information is flawed - you suggest because people don't test their
backups, it's best if they don't backup "often". Serious error there
pal, if they get some backups working properly, then using your logic,
it would stand to reason that they backup more frequently so that there
is a higher chance their backup would be a good one.

Anyone that understands backup and importance should also be told that
an untested backup may be worthless. All of our clients test their
backups weekly.
