Do you think a tester's role is shrunk in agile software development?

Many project managers tell their testers, Oh! We are working in agile development, so we need to wrap things quickly. And to be able to do that, if you find a defect, report to the developer immediately and get it fixed. No need to document the defect. On being asked, why, the obvious answer is as a part of agile development we need to ensure that we minimize documentation, save time and hence reduce cost. Also, since Agile talks about being collaborative, the tester needs to discuss the test case with developer and assist him in his development. What role is the tester playing

What do you use for automation testing?

Everyone knows how important testing is, and, successively, actually involved in software development does test the software that they release. But even a simple application often has so many different possible behavior patterns that some only take place in rather unusual circumstances. Thus, automation testing is a big deal even if a project is not very big but split into many iterations.
